Immense pressure on him now, he's got to put in some incredibly consistent performances to justify that fee.
Here's the thing though MP. I think he's made a great choice in choosing PSG and France. In the French league he will be the star attraction and playing for PSG against the majority of ligue 1 teams he will shine, just as Ibra, who is nowhere near as dynamic, did for PSG. That team dominates most games it plays in, he'll be getting plenty of ball and will be playing in a very good team (A team I think is on it's way to being better than Barca in a footballing sense right now) that slabs it's opponents most weeks.
I think this is a great move for him, for PSG and for the French league. All will benefit, as the league will hopefully be able to negotiate better TV rights etc and every club will have a few more bums on seats in their grounds when PSG come to town (already most teams best attendance along with Marseille most seasons - unless they have a big local derby which isn't many)
