Neymar Sr had stated that as long as his son plays with the Argentine forward, he will never be able to achieve an individual status. 
Neymar leaving the Catalans to join the Les Parisians on a world record deal of 220 Million Euros simply means destroying a legacy that the Brazilian had created for himself. Joining Ligue 1 would be less competitive as PSG were the runners-up for the title last season. 
Neymar also feels that the Samba companionship has even left the Catalans as Adriano left for Bestikas and Rafihina is also on the verge of leaving the club. With former Barcelona right back Dani Alves joining Emery's side, Neymar will also be accompanied alongside Brazilain team mates Thiago Silva, Marquinos and Lucas, the current Barcelona winger would fit right in. 

PSG have also made a bid for troubled Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez for 45 Million Pounds as the Les Parisians look to bolster their squad and challenge for the Champions League this year as that's what the Chilean desires to play for. 

PSG were relegated by FC Barcelona in the UEFA Champions league round of 16 when one of the most historic comebacks ever took place. PSG destroyed the Catalans 4-0 in the first leg in Paris. With former coach Luis Enrique changing tactics and formations, the Catalans turned tables when they defeated Les Parisians on an aggregate of 6-5 when Sergio Roberto scored a last minute goal to lead FC Barcelona into the Quater-Finals. Neymar tapped in a brace for the hosts in the second leg which led to such a historic moment in football. 

Neymar leaving the club is a great shock to all football fans as it seems like a money making move. The fans have expressed their anger on social media for the Brazilian to leave the club for one of the most irrelevant reasons. With Messi catching up on age, the Brazilan can perfectly build a legacy of his own as Ronaldinho did for himself. The only difference is that the Brazilain Maestro saw Messi gloom into the player that he is today and that what the Argentine is doing for the youngster. 

FC Barcelona are currently in the USA for their Pre-Season tour and as media reports suggested, the Brazilian would leave directly for Paris for his medicals and his contract signing with the Les Parisians.
