It has finally happened, Neymar has officially signed for Paris Saint Germain (PSG).
With this, Neymar has became the most expensive football player, ever (with some distance).
He transferred from Barcelona to PSG for incredible €222 million, which is kind of hard to believe.
This is a transfer that’s weirder than fiction, and not totally complete.
That’s also the main reason why it got Twitter rolling about the news!

A LOT OF UNHAPPINESS ABOUT NEYMAR!
£200m is just stupid. Neymar is one of the best in the world but nothing can justify fee and his wages. Also don’t get why he’d leave Barca

Barcelona have released a statement:
“NeymarJR is the Justin Bieber of football. Brilliant on the old YouTube. Cat piss in reality” pic.twitter.com/ydgzlch2ck

Well, shit just got real!
NeymarJR has became the most expensive football player in the planet, despite being the weakest link in Barcelona’s trio.
Did he make the right choice? Its hard to say, but the fact is that he won’t be under Messi’s shadow at PSG.
Which isn’t bad, given that’s his going to get super-duper rich in the process!
