"I believe PSG are prepared to fight once again having come very close in recent years. I have the same dream and desire to win another Champions League," he told beIN SPORTS. 

"Hopefully I can do whatever is necessary so that we can achieve that goal, which is something that would mean a lot to the club, to me personally, and to the fans.

"To be honest, it was crazy. From the moment the statement came out, people were flooding the streets without knowing I would be coming here since nothing had then been confirmed.

"It is my first experience outside of Barcelona, having been there for so long, and to experience this is crazy. I'm just enjoying every minute and very excited to start.

"I am very excited to play with Neymar after having spent so much time separated, and very excited to play alongside everyone else. I think Paris have a spectacular squad and I'm very excited to enjoy the day-to-day with them all.

"The No. 30 was the first shirt I played in, in my first few years at Barcelona. After so much time, and with this big change, I feel like I am starting again, and it feels right to start again with the No. 30 shirt."
