Neymar released a statement : "I am extremely happy to join Paris Saint - Germain, "

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

The 25 year old will take up the No 10 jersey from Javier Pastore who is set to switch back to his former number 27.

The Brazillian scored 105 goals for Barcelona winning the Champions League, La Liga, World club Cup, Copa del ray and the Spanish Super cup in his four years at the club.

Psg's president Nasser Al-Khelaifi also released an official statement : "It is with immense joy and pride that we welcome Neymar Jr to Paris saint - Germain,"

"Neymar  is today one of the very best players in world football. His winning mentality, strength of character and sense of leadership have made him into a great player,"

"He will bring a very positive energy to this club."
