Total Cost Of Neymar's World Record Move To Paris Saint-Germain Revealed?
Neymar's potential world record move to Paris Saint-Germain would not only cost R3.3 billion in transfer fee, but as much as a whopping R9.3 billion overall.
The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a move to the French giants, who are reportedly prepared to activate his €222 million (R3.3 billion) release clause.
In addition, PSG would apparently have to pay €50 million (R756 million) in taxes for the record deal, as ESPN’s Graham Hunter has stated.
Neymar, or rather his father, would reportedly also receive about €50 million as a signing-on fee if the Brazilian completes the big-money switch to France.
Furthermore, PSG have reportedly offered the player a €30 million (R454 million) annual net salary, which means they would have to pay about the same amount in taxes.
With a five-year deal suggested, that would equate to €300 million (R4.5 billion) in wages and €622 million (R9.3 billion) overall, breaking every deal in the history of the game, according to Hunter.
However, the question as to how PSG would finance such a monster deal remains, with even Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu suggesting it would break Financial Fair Play regulations.
Barca insider Rafael Hernandez, who chatted to Soccer Laduma exclusively about Neymar's potential record deal, claimed that PSG owners Oryx Qatar Sports Investments could become the player's personal sponsor and transfer the money into his personal bank account, which would then enable the Brazilian to pay his own buyout clause.
According to Hernandez and other experts, in doing so, PSG's books would therefore not be influenced by the record deal, yet all would be set for Neymar to become the main man at the French giants.
