When Neymar joined PSG in the summer of 2017 for a world record fee of £198 million, it raised many eyebrows as no one expected the 26-year old Brazilian to leave FC Barcelona. But things happen in football which no one can expect.

While Neymar is definitely not the first Brazilian to play for PSG, there have been many not just any ordinary players, but players of great quality from Brazil have represented PSG.

PSG have a history of signing top Brazilian talent's.

It was during the 1990's when the relationship between PSG and Brazil deepened. The then owners of PSG TV Canal started recruiting foreign talents and Brazilian' s become a center of attention in the transfer market for the Parisians.

The 1990's was also a time when the rivalry between two French giants PSG and Marseille was at its peak. Thus bringing in quality players was a must for both teams in order to stay ahead of their rival.

Not only in 1990's even after that the Parisians have been bringing in Brazilian's to the Parc des Princes. Therefore here we look at PSG's Top 5 Brazilian signing's-

#5 Lucas

Lucas signing helped PSG make a statement in the transfer market.

The former Sao Paulo winger is not currently in the PSG's roster, but he will always be an important signing in the history of the club. Before leaving the club in January in 2018 he won 5 Ligue 1 with the club.

The significance of his signing can be traced back to the fact that PSG won the battle of signing him from the likes of Manchester United and Inter Milan.

It was the time of 2012 and PSG had just started a new era in their history under the new Qatari ownership and the fact that the Parisians were able to snap him up despite the fact that he had offers from the Red Devils and Nerazzurri helped PSG in stamping their authority in the transfer market.

The signing of Lucas helped PSG give a statement to the football world that under their new ownership, they not only have the money to sign players, but they also have the capacity to sign them under the noses of big European giants.
