Neymar and his father, Neymar Snr., are not in agreement over his record-breaking €222million move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The player revealed this in his farewell message to Barcelona, which he posted on his Instagram page on Thursday night.
In the video, Neymar made it clear that the decision was completely his and explained that he was ready for a new challenge in Paris.
The Brazilian forward also said he has had the honour of playing with “the greatest athlete I have ever seen in my life” in Lionel Messi, calling the Argentine his “partner, friend on and off the pitch.”
Neymar also revealed he would be going against his father’s wishes by making the move to Paris.
“Father, I understand and respect your opinion, but my decision is made and I ask you to support me as you do.
“Barcelona and Catalonia will always be in my heart but I need new challenges,” he added.
