Money was never the motivating factor for Neymar's record 222 million euro ($261 million) transfer from Barcelona, the world's most expensive footballer said on his arrival at Paris St. Germain Friday.The previous record was midfielder Paul Pogba's move last year from Juventus to Manchester United for 105 million euros.Khelaifi was not concerned about possibly falling foul of UEFA's Financial Fair Play regulations, which limit the amount a club can spend in excess of their income, saying, "We are working very transparently with UEFA".As well as his undeniable assets on the field, Neymar proved an instant hit at PSG's stadium shop which sold out of shirts with Neymar's No. 10 on the back, at a price of between 100 and 150 euros each.Neymar denied that he had tired of playing second fiddle to Lionel Messi at Barcelona.
