The unorthodox defender signed for the French champions for anastonishing £50m, with Chelsea unable to turn down such an enormous sum for the player.
The Brazilian stated that he could have stayed with the London club if he wished, but made the decision to move across the Channel to Paris for a new challenge.
“I was happy with the plan PSG offered me and I think it was exactly the right moment to move. Chelsea also offered me a new contract but it was my choice to come here,” he said.
“I was playing for a big club like Chelsea and now I’ve got opportunity to play for another big club. I’m enjoying it here.”
PSG have not gotten off to the greatest start in Ligue 1 this season, currently seven points behind first place Marseille after nine games. They do however have a team full to the brim with world class talent, and considering the level of competition in the French first division they should be able to push on and retain their title with few problems.
