PSG smashed the transfer record when they purchased the Brazil star in August, paying €222 million (A$335.68 million) to bring him to the Parc des Princes.

Many suggested that Neymar was unlikely to win the Ballon d'Or while playing in the shadow of Lionel Messi at Barcelona, and that he needed to break free and become a different club's answer to the Argentina superstar.

Unsurprisingly, Neymar has enjoyed a swift and seamless transition to life in Ligue 1, scoring six times in as many league games and he also has a pair of goals from his two UEFA Champions League outings.

Neymar insisted in September that winning the Ballon d'Or is not an obsession of his, but PSG are seemingly intent on making sure he wins the gong.
