PSG's star player Neymar Jr is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in world of football. The 29-year-old is like a magnet on the field as he often grabs the headlines for some reason or the other. It could either be any of his audacious skills or any other crazy activity, he is the centre of attraction whenever he is on the football pitch. During the first-leg of UCL semifinal between PSG and Manchester City, the footballer once again gave the fans a topic to talk about despite him not being on the score-sheet.

The Neymar-Fortnite collab

As most of the fans know, Neymar is an avid fan of PC Gaming and has often been seen playing Counter-Strike and FIFA 21. Keeping his interest in mind, Epic Games recently announced a collaboration between them and Neymar with a new skin of footballer arriving in season six of Fortnite. The PSG winger was definitely excited with this collaboration which was on display recently as he wore a stylish pair of Fortnite-themed boots during the UCL game against Man City.

Fans loving the Fortnite-themed shoes

The fans were quick to observe the Fortnite-inspired cleats and loved the design of Neymar’s Primal Form. While the right shoe had a red and blue shade which is the jersey colour of PSG, the left shoe's colour had a touch of Brazilian kit. On the other hand, the heel panel features the exciting exoskeleton design, giving it a very attractive look.

It was a well-planned move as part of the collaboration as fans of Neymar and Fortnite got an opportunity to grab the stylish pair of shoes by competing in the Neymar Jr Cup which was held on April 28. The exciting partnership has already resulted in Fortnite getting Neymar-inspired items like Soccer Ball emote toy, a Loading Screen, a Pickaxe and an Emote. The fans are now curious to know what all they plan to do with this collaboration going ahead.
