The financial power of Paris Saint Germain has been demonstrated on multiple occasions, not to mention after the surprise signing of Lionel Messi, and now the Spanish newspaper El Mundo has published a new test with the contract of the Brazilian Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, Neymar, for which the French club between the termination clause and the striker's salaries will end up spending almost 500 million euros.

According to the newspaper's information, PSG paid Barcelona the figure of 222 million euros of its clause, to which must be added an annual gross salary of 43,334,400 euros during the five seasons of validity of the contract dated March 3 August 2017.

A sixth season was also added, by automatic renewal, for which he received 50,556,117 euros as a bonus. All this means that the signing of Neymar meant that the French club paid a total of 489,228,117 euros, almost 500 million.

This same season, PSG has signed Messi, although this time the Rosario arrived free, with the pass in his possession, and did not accept the offer from Real Madrid, of almost 200 million euros, for Kylian Mbappé, who ends his contract June 30, 2022.
