Neymar: PSG's ambition attracted me

World-record signing Neymar says his move to Paris Saint-Germain came about after he was impressed by the French club's ambition.

Neymar completed his historic move from Barcelona on Thursday after PSG met his release clause of €222 million, a deal that smashes the transfer record previously held by Manchester United's Paul Pogba (€105m).

The 25-year-old, who spent four successful seasons with Barca, says he was always attracted by the French club's project. "I am extremely happy to join Paris Saint-Germain," said Neymar, who will be presented by his new club on Friday.

"Since I arrived in Europe, the club has always been one of the most competitive and most ambitious. And the biggest challenge, what most motivated me to join my new team-mates is to help the club to conquer the titles that their fans want.

"Paris Saint-Germain's ambition attracted me to the club, along with the passion and the energy this brings. I played four seasons in Europe and I feel ready to take the challenge."
