WATCH: Neymar says final farewell to FC Barcelona

Neymar to PSG is done.

Neymar has released a tribute video to Barcelona after signing with PSG for 222m Euros. The World Record transfer has left a sour taste in the mouths of Barca fans, especially after the players silence that led up to the transfer.

He’s finally broken that silence, thanking the Catalans for molding him into the superstar that he is today.

You could argue that the 25 year old left for money and fame. Smarter critics would argue that Neymar is looking to step out of Lionel Messi’s shadow. It would make sense that he would want to be the biggest and best star in the limelight.

Could he be leaving for the personal accolades? With Messi’s dominance, it was always unlikely that Neymar would win the FIFA Ballon d’Or with the Argentine in the team. Not for a good 2-3 years anyway, which could be too long to wait for the Brazilian forward.

Well here’s his farewell video. Make of that what you will.
