Thanks to his new contract with Barcelona Neymar will not only earn more money than his teammate Lionel Messi but also by any other footballer on the planet, according to the press.
It became clear already why Neymar was in a hurry to sign a new agreement with the Catalans-the Brazilian managed to get the most expensive contract in the history of world football. Barcelona was ready to do everything to keep its star. Neymar had bargains from Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, as well as from the big rival of the Catalans in Spain-Real Madrid. Taking into account these circumstances, Barca had to agree to fulfill all conditions of Neymar.
He will now earn 25 million euros a year. That`s three million more than Messi currently receives.
One of the lawyers for the players - Marcos Motta announced: `Neymar and Barcelona reached an agreement and signed the biggest contract in the history of football.`
Wagner Ribeiro spoke similarly: `Neymar is the soccer player with the highest salary in football.`
Neymar can be purchased by another club for 200 million euros the first year after the signing, for 225 million at the second and for 250 million dollars at the third. For a 3-year career in Barcelona, Neymar took part in 141 games adviced by rugby tipster in which he scored 85 goals.
