Paris: Football legend Pele congratulated Neymar on his world record move to Paris Saint Germain, telling his successor in the famed Brazilian number 10 shirt: "Good luck for your new challenge".

"Paris is a beautiful city and one of my favourites in the world," three-time World Cup winner Pele wrote on Twitter.

Neymar completed his record-shattering transfer from Barcelona to Paris St Germain on Thursday, signing a five-year deal with the French club after they triggered his 222 million euros ($263 million) release clause.

The 25-year-old Brazil forward, who will be presented to fans on Saturday, is committed to PSG until June 2022, the club said in a statement. Media reports have said he could earn around 550,000 euros per week.

Both Barcelona and Spain's La Liga questioned whether the move complied with UEFA's financial regulations, with the club saying they would report the deal to European football's governing body.

The transfer doubles the previous world record fee paid when Paul Pogba moved last August from Juventus to Manchester United for a 105 million euros.
