Neymar in Paris Saint-Germain: 5 years have passed since his expensive signature | French league

Neymar has been one of the most controversial players, as of late, on the pitch. His talent is undoubted and he has the potential to be considered one of the best in the world. However, in recent years he has come under heavy criticism for not being the expected captain at PSG. Which is that his arrival, five years ago, was full of controversy.

His secondary role in Barcelona, ​​where he was with Suarez and Messi, and the formation of MSN, was among the motivators that prompted the Brazilian to agree to change one of the most powerful clubs in the world, at that time, to be tempted by the millions of petrodollars, offered by the state club.

It was 222 million euros, that Paris Saint-Germain paid, to cover the termination clause of the contract with the Catalans. The check was the controversy that reached the club and was later leaked. From there, the world order in football changed constantly.

Since his arrival, he has lost his relevance, especially with the role of Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe. What it was like to arrive, compared to the present, reflects disappointment. Neymar was not the deciding factor that PSG needed, plus the failures in the Champions League overshadow any good performances with the French national team.
