Neymar 'free and happy' after joining PSG from Barcelona - Filipe Luis
From ESPN - September 12, 2017

Atletico Madrid left-back Filipe Luis says Brazil teammate Neymar "made the right decision" to leave Barcelona for Paris Saint Germain this summer.

Neymar agreed a surprise 222 million move to Ligue 1 this summer but has settled quickly at PSG, providing four goals and four assists in his first four games for his new club.

Filipe Luis rejected suggestions the 25-year-old had left Barca for financial reasons, telling Spanish football magazine Panenka: "[Neymar] made the right decision joining PSG.

"You can see he is different. He is free and happy. At the level Neymar moves at, you do not change teams for money."
