PHOTOS: Hordes of Excited PSG Fans Couldn't Wait To Get Their Hands on New Neymar Shirts

Friday August 4th, 2017

Paris Saint-Germain could hardly wait to get their hands on brand new shirts bearing the 'Neymar' name on Friday morning following the formal completion of the Brazilian superstar's €222m move from Barcelona the night before.

In arguably the biggest transfer in football history, not only in terms of the money that has and will continue to change hands, Neymar was unveiled as PSG's new number 10 as he looks to step out from the shadows of former Barcelona colleague Lionel Messi.

PSG announced that Neymar shirts would exclusively go on sale at the club's official store on Paris' iconic Champs-Elysees on Friday morning at 10am (CET).

And fans desperate to be among the first to welcome the 25-year-old to France queued up in mega lines as they waited for the doors to open.

Those who got their Neymar jerseys were then eager to show them off.
