The Brazil international joined from Barcelona in a world-record €222million transfer last month, in a move that many considered to be motivated by a desire to escape the shadow of Lionel Messi and challenge for football’s top individual prize.

Neymar’s form for the Ligue 1 side has certainly added weight to any hopes of winning the award, the 25-year-old having taken his tally to five goals and five assists in as many games after inspiring PSG to a 5-0 thrashing of Celtic on Tuesday. “Of course a football player wants to win the Ballon d’Or,” he said after the Champions League win in Glasgow. “But I don’t have to think about it. I have to think about what’s better for our group, our club.”

“This is a great team and, if we keep going like this, we have a big chance of doing it [winning the tournament].

“I’m very happy to start with a win. Of course, it’s not only about getting goals, but that’s the most important.”
