World record fee for Neymar

August 4, 2017

Brazilian footballer Neymar is apparently leaving Barcelona for a world record transfer fee.

The Spanish club has confirmed that he’s leaving with reports that he’s heading to French team Paris Saint-Germain for 354 million dollars.

Neymar signed a new contract to 2021, which had a buy-out clause of around 195 million dollars.

At this stage there are some issues with the transfer.

Under the fair play rules a club’s wage bill must not exceed 70 per cent of its revenue. Neymar will be reported earning around 40 million pound a year in wages.

Neymar signed for Barcelona from Brazilian side Santos for 91 million dollars, although it was later revealed the cost was closer to 160 million.
