Neymar revealed to Barcelona team-mates that he was quitting for Paris Saint-Germain at Lionel Messi’s WEDDING.
The Samba ace sealed a world-record £198million move to the French club on August 4 – over a month after the Rosario bash.
According to former team-mate Xavi, Neymar broke the news to his Barca pals at Messi’s wedding in Argentina on June 30.
Xavi told the BBC: “He said to us at Messi’s wedding that he wanted to change club.
“I said to him but why? He said ‘I am not happy in Barcelona I prefer to leave, to have a new experience in Europe at PSG’
“And finally he did, it was his decision, we must respect it.
“I think with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, PSG have a great chance to win the Champions League this season.”
Xavi also revealed that he turned down the chance to move to Manchester United when Sir Alex Ferguson was in charge.
The Blaugrana legend added: “Sometimes we were discussing with Manchester United and Alex Ferguson’s brother to try and join me there.
“But I decided to stay in Barcelona because it’s my club.
“I was thinking always in Barcelona, its my favourite team, I feel Barcelona in my heart, it’s the best club in the world.”
World Cup winner Xavi spent 17 years with Barca before moving to Qatari outfit Al Sadd two seasons ago.
