Respected French journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi, revealed earlier today that Neymar has already signed a five-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on Thursday in Barcelona and will be officially unveiled as a PSG player on Saturday.

According to Bouhafsi, Neymar wants to make his PSG debut on Saturday’s Ligue 1opener against Amiens at the Parc des Princes.

Following all the reactions from the initial transfer news we know the footballer’s fans must be excited about his move.

The Brazilian footballer posted a series of videos on Instagram, as he says goodbye to the Blaugrana.

He released four short videos in which he describes playing for Barca as a dream and admits it was an honor playing alongside Leo Messi.

Neymar also explains he opted to move to PSG as he was in need of a new challenge, although he says it was a “hard decision” to leave Barcelona.

La vida de un deportista se mueve por desafíos. Algunos son impuestos, otros son fruto de nuestras decisiones. El Barcelona ha sido más que un desafío. Jugaba con aquellos cracks en el video juego. Llegué a Catalunya a los 21 años, lleno de desafíos. Recuerdo mis primeros días en el Club, compartiendo el vestuario con ídolos como Messi, Valdés, Xavi, Iniesta, Puyol, Piqué, Busquets y otros con la expectativa de jugar en un Club que es “més que un club”. El @fcbarcelona es una nación que representa a Catalunya! Tuve el honor de actuar con el mayor atleta que he visto en mi vida y estoy seguro que no veré a otro mejor, @leomessi se convirtió en mi compañero, amigo dentro y fuera del terreno de juego. Orgulloso de jugar contigo. Formé un ataque con @leomessi y @luissuarez9 que ha quedado para la historia. He conquistado todo lo que un deportista puede conquistar. He vivido momentos inolvidables! Vivo en una ciudad que es más que una ciudad, es una patria. Amo Barcelona y Catalunya. Pero un deportista (YO) necesita desafíos. Y por segunda vez en mi vida le llevaré la contraria a mi papa. Papa, entiendo y respeto tu opinión, pero mi decisión está tomada, te pido que me apoyes como siempre lo has hecho. El @fcbarcelona y Catalunya estarán siempre en mi corazón pero necesito nuevos desafíos. He aceptado la propuesta del @psg para buscar nuevas conquistas y ayudar al Club a alcanzar los títulos que la afición espera. Me han presentado un plan de carrera osado y me veo preparado para este desafío. Agradezco el cariño de la afición blaugrana y todo lo que he aprendido con los deportistas con quien he compartido vestuario. Asimismo siento en mi corazón que ha llegado el momento de irme. El @psg será mi nueva casa durante los próximos años y trabajaré para hacer honor a la confianza que depositan en mi futbol. Cuento mucho con el apoyo de todos. Aficionados, de mis amigos, de los profesionales que me acompañan y de mi familia, que ha sufrido mucho con problemas que han ocurrido en este periodo de mi carrera y merecen paz. Es una decisión difícil, pero tomada con la madurez de mis 25 años. @fcbarcelona , gràcies per tot! @psg , J’arrive! Que Dios nos bendiga y nos proteja!

I prepared a text here for today. The life of an athlete is made by challenges. Some are given to us. Others are fruits of our own decisions to keep the light that illuminates our career, which is intense but short.

“Barcelona was much more than a challenge. It was the dream of a child who played with those stars through the video game. I arrived at Catalonia when I was 21 years old filled with challenges.

“I can still remember my first days in the club sharing the changing room with idols like Messi, Valdes, Xavi, Iniesta, Puyol, Pique, Busquets and many others. Waiting my turn to play in a club that’s “mes que un club”.

“Barcelona is a nation representing Catalonia. I had the honor of playing with the best athlete I’ve ever seen in my life and I’m sure i will never see another one like him when I’m alive. Leo Messi became my friend on and off the pitch. It was an honor to play with you. I made a trio with Messi and Suarez that made history and conquered everything an athlete can conquer.

“I lived unforgettable moments. Lived in a city that’s more than a city. It’s a homeland. I love Barcelona and I love Catalonia. But an athlete (ME) needs challenges. And for the second time in my life, I’ll contradict my father. Father I understand and respect your opinion but my decision is made and I ask you to support me as you always do. “So go with God and be happy, ok son. Kiss I’m running up here with you”.

“Barcelona and Catalonia will always be in my heart but I need new challenges. I accepted PSG’s proposal to try new achievements and help the club win the titles that their crowd wants. They showed me a daring career plan and I feel ready to take on this challenge. I thank the wonderful blaugrana crowd and everything learned with the great athletes that I had the chance to share the dressing room.

“Now I feel in my heart that it’s time to leave. PSG will be my home for the next few years and I will work hard to honor all of the trust placed in my football. I’m counting on the support of all of you who’s been with me since 2009.

“Fans, friends, professionals who are with me and my family who suffered a lot with some problems that took place during that period in my career.Today you deserve peace. It’s a very hard decision, but I made it with the maturity I accumulated through those 25 years.

“Barcelona gracies per tot! Paris j’arrive! May God bless and protect us.
