Barca boss Valverde looks to future after Neymar departure

The LFP added it "supports Paris Saint-Germain and wishes Neymar's arrival in the Ligue 1 championship".

The Catalan giants said: "On Thursday, Neymar Jr's legal representatives visited the club's offices and made the payment of 222m euros in the player's name with regards to the unilateral termination of the contract. I want to give my best to help club, to achieve and win trophies", he told reporters.

"La Liga is an entity that defends the interests of the clubs and right now it is defending Barcelona", said Marcos Galera, a lawyer and founding member of Spanish sports law specialists Agaz.

The world record signing did not play in the match, with his worldwide transfer certificate not lodged with the French league by the midnight deadline on Friday. Any possible consequences for PSG, such as fines or being banned from the Champions League, will come further down the line when it eventually has to show that Neymar's transfer was funded without incurring losses.

PSG had already started to recuperate part of Neymar's mammoth transfer fee on Friday when he was officially unveiled as the most expensive player in history at 222 million euros ($264m).

Neymar, who represents the national team of Brazil, will earn 45m euros (£40.7m) a year - 865,000 euros (£782,000) a week. "I wanted a bigger challenge, and my heart made this decision and I followed my heart".

He said, "They will pay Neymar's release clause today [Wednesday], so the presentation can take place at the end of the week".

"There is only one decision that matters and that is with Uefa".

In a statement, he said: "Fifpro is calling on the European Commission to investigate the flow of money via transfer fees within the EU territory to understand their impact on competitive balance in the region". "And for the second time in my life, I am going against the advice of my Dad", the Brazilian wrote in a long post in Spanish on his Instagram account on Thursday night.

A little more than 12 hours after his transfer from Barcelona was confirmed, the Brazilian was introduced as a PSG player in front of the world's media at the Parc des Princes just after lunch on day. I am sad about the fact that the fans think that.

La Liga refused to accept the payment, having complained that PSG would be breaching Financial Fair Play rules, but Barcelona accepted defeat - and a fee that more doubled the previous record, Manchester United's £89m signing of Paul Pogba a year ago. But in two years' time it might not anymore.

Neymar will wear the No 10 shirt at PSG, the shirt was offered to the Brazilian by Javier Pastore as a gesture to make him feel welcome at the club.

The former Santos player will be presented to PSG fans on Saturday.
