Paris Saint-Germain paid a whopping € 222 million to Barcelona for Neymar in 2017. Overall, the deal could cost PSG over half a billion.
In 2017, Neymar moved from FC Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain, which is still the most expensive transfer in football history. Now El Mundo has published the insane numbers of the deal: Including salary, the Brazilian PSG could cost almost 600 million euros by the end of his contract term.
As the Spanish newspaper explained with regard to the contract concluded a good four years ago, in addition to the 222 million euros transfer fee, there is an annual gross salary of 43,334,400 euros. This will rise to 50,556,117 euros from the coming season. After the contract is extended until 2025, this sum should also apply to the following years. This results in a total of over 590 million euros.
Since moving to the French capital, the 29-year-old has won the championship and the cup three times, but has not won an international title. After losing to FC Bayern in the final, the star ensemble lost to Manchester City in the semifinals last season.
