“I’m happy with the transfer, but sad that I have had to say goodbye to Milan,” he said from Brazil’s Olympic training camp.
“I experienced some strong emotions there. It is a club which dedicates itself to its players and the squad – I owe them everything.
“My transfer to Paris was not a decision taken by me – that’s 100 per cent certain – after all, I had just extended my contract.
“People who understand about football know how things went and it was a complicated matter for me. It was my desire, and that of my family, to not leave Milan.
“I’m not going to PSG to earn more money. I’m not a mercenary, but I want to say sorry to the Milan fans.”
