The Argentinian suggested Neymar will feel at home at the Paris club. "Our style won't change with him, we have a possession-based game like Barcelona, with lots of movement." Pastore said it had been an easy decision to give him his jersey. "I knew that he wanted to have the No.10. I know that for the club it's important to have a No.10 like Neymar for all that that represents. "For me to return to No.27 isn't a problem, I really like that number. I'm happy to have worn the No.10 between 'Ibra' (Zlatan Ibrahimovic) and before Neymar."

Despite all the drama and intrigue surrounding his departure from Barcelona Pastore described Neymar as "laidback and reserved". One of his other new teammates Adrien Rabiot said Neymar was "a cool guy, balanced, who has the right spirit, joyful". The French midfielder disclosed: "On Friday we got him to sing. He was up for it straight away. You can see he's really happy to be here. "That's what he's told us in any case, I reckon he means it." Neymar's compatriot Dani Alves said his role in Neymar's arrival had been minimal. "I didn't interfere. The only thing I said to him was 'Be happy and make the right decision, whether that's staying at Barca or coming here'." Alves, who played with Neymar at Barcelona, said that rather than persuading Neymar to move to PSG, it had been Neymar who had advised him to move to Paris from Juventus this summer.
