Neymar not motivated by money

Neymar has dismissed accusations of greed after completing his £200m move from Barcelona to Paris St Germain that will earn him £40.7m per year.

“What I say to these people is they don’t know anything about my personal life,” he said in the PSG press conference. “I was never motivated by money.

“If I was following the money, I would be somewhere else, with other clubs in other countries. I’m really sad that people still think that way and I’m glad that PSG believe in me.”

La Liga and Barcelona are unhappy with PSG and claim they are breaching UEFA Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations, but the chairman insists everything is above board.

“We will be very transparent with Financial Fair Play,” said Nasser Al Khelaifi. “I have a strong team with me. If you are thinking about it, go have a coffee and don’t worry about it.

“There is only one decision that matters and that is with Uefa. We are working very transparently with Uefa.

“We don’t care about speculation in the media. We care that what we are doing is transparent and completely legal.”
