How much money does Neymar have?
Without a doubt, Neymar da Silva Santos Junior is one of the top-paid South American soccer players in the world. The total fortune of the Neymar family is estimated at around 250 million euros and – since Neymar is still at the beginning of his career – will probably grow significantly in the following years. We deliberately write family, because through the transfer from FC Santos to Barcelona his father received about 43 million euros. Since a transfer to PSG took place for an astronomical transfer fee of 222 million euros, the father was able to earn a lot of money from the transfer of his son (21.4 million euros).
Neymar’s salary at Al Hilal
When he moved to Al Hilal for a transfer fee of €80 million + €20 million in bonuses in the summer of 2023, Neymar became the most expensive transfer player of all time. In total, more than 400 million euros have already been transferred for the Brazilian in transfer costs. The salary for a 2-year contract is 80 million euros / season. This means that the superstar has doubled from a top contract at PSG. Similar to Cristiano Ronaldo (to Al Nassr in 2022), the Saudis lured with a lot of money and were thus able to make a top signing.
Former salary at Paris Saint-Germain
Neymar earned an incredible €37 million in his first contract at Paris Saint-Germain. In addition, there were bonuses, which allowed him to further supplement his salary. In addition, the young Brazilian is a sought-after advertising face for global brands, which have to dig into their pockets for his services. After an early contract extension in May 2021 until the summer of 2025, Neymar will “only” receive an annual salary of 36 million euros. Losses that he accepts due to the Corona pandemic. The bonuses are said to have been increased once again. e.g.: 10 million euros for the Champions League victory. Further payments are allegedly to be processed externally via shareholdings in hotel chains.
Former salary at FC Barcelona
The salary of Neymar jr. at FC Barcelona was estimated at 16.2 million euros / season, net mind you, but there are also considerable sums in bonuses. However, he was behind Barca’s top earner Lionel Messi.
The superstar has provisionally extended his contract until 2021. The transfer fee stipulated in this agreement amounts to 2017 million euros in the first year (200), 2018 million euros in the second year (222) and 2019 million euros in the following three years 2021-250. So if you wanted to tear the Brazilian away from FC Barcelona, you had to dig deep into your pockets. PSG president Nasser Ghanim Al-Khelaifi was willing to offer such a transfer fee. He actually brought the Brazilian to Paris at the start of the 2017/18 season. This makes him by far the most expensive transfer in the world. However, Barcelona announced in 2019 that they wanted to bring the superstar back and would probably sacrifice some stars to PSG to do so. However, the deal fell through because of the money.
Born on February 5, 1992, in the Brazilian city of Magi das Cruzes, Neymar showed a strong affinity for football from a very early age. At the age of eleven, he was already playing very successfully for Santos FC. Since this was a large football club, where successful football players in the various youth teams could play their way up to the professional senior team, Neymar also benefited from this opportunity. Even in his youth, he impressed his coaches and teammates with his talent. Since he had also caught the eye of the coach of the first team as an outstanding striker, he was very quickly taken over by the club’s first team squad in 2009. Already during his first season with the first team of Santos FC, Neymar was repeatedly described as a child prodigy in the press.
Although Neymar was to play for his first club for a total of ten years, he was also noticed very early in Europe. As early as 2006, he was allowed to take part in a training camp of the Spanish club Real Madrid. This led to a rapid increase in his market value, as the Spaniards promptly tried to poach the young football star and bring him up for their own professional squad. Nevertheless, at the end of 2013, Neymar finally decided to move to Europe, not to Real Madrid, but to FC Barcelona.
Neymar also plays for the Brazilian national team. The World Cup in South Africa (2010) was the first in which Neymar took part as an over-18 player. Again, he was able to score a goal. He also played at the Olympic Games (London), the 2011 Copa America and the Confederation Cup.
The actual transfer fee for Neymar (FC Barcelona)
Up to that point, he had already had a respectable track record: he had scored 103 goals from 54 league games for the Brazilian club – a fantastic rate of 0.5 goals per game. This success statistic cost the Spaniards dearly, as the club had to pay 86 million euros in transfer fees to be allowed to sign Neymar with them. However, this transfer is highly controversial and is currently being investigated by the public prosecutor’s office. The question that the Spanish Hacienda (tax office) is asking itself is: What was the actual transfer fee? This is a tax-relevant issue for the hacienda. The club had originally stated only 57 million euros, as the difference was a salary payment.
The Hacienda, on the other hand, assumes that the actual transfer fee was almost 100 million euros. In the meantime, the Madrid sports daily Marca has revealed that with all the fines, a total of around 157 million euros flowed into the Neymar transfer. Never before has such a high transfer fee been paid to a football player. The most expensive official transfer is still Paul Pogba (105 million euros) ahead of Gareth Bale (101 million euros), followed by Cristiano Ronaldo (97 million euros) until the transfer of Neymar to PSG.
- 17.1 million (Santos FC)
- 4.5 million euros (friendly matches with Santos FC)
- 7.9 million (right of first refusal for three FC Santos players)
- 10 million (hand money for Neymar)
- 40 million (payments to Neymar’s parents)
- 13.5 million (payment to the tax office)
- €2 million (bonus for Neymar)
- 8.5 million (payment to the Neymar Jr. Foundation)
- 2.7 million (consultant commission to the father)
- 25.2 million euros (penalty ex-president Rosell)
- EUR 3.8 million (penalty for President Bartomeu)
- 22.2 million euros (new penalty FC Barcelona)
Penalties and imminent imprisonment
However, the change will not be without consequences, because the public prosecutor’s office is now investigating. It faces a prison sentence of up to 2 years and a fine of 10 million euros. However, if you look at the past, it quickly becomes clear that such a superstar from FC Barcelona does not have to go to prison and usually gets away with fines. But Neymar’s family, who have benefited enormously from the deal, are also in the crossfire. The father and mother are also to be charged and go to prison for up to 2 years, but here too a verdict remains to be seen. It could look worse for the former club boss of Barcelona, Sandro Rosell, because he wants to be banned for a total of 5 years.
Neymar wants to enjoy his unusually high wealth for his age to the fullest. For example, he owns a luxury yacht that he bought for about $8 million. However, according to Business Insider, this yacht also costs a considerable 120,000 US dollars a year to maintain. With such a high purchase price, however, these are only peanuts.
He is also not averse to the automobile. According to Business Insider, these include a Porsche Panamera Turbo, a Volvo XC 60 and an Audi R8 GT. In fact, however, the player has also been seen in numerous other vehicles and it can be assumed that his vehicle collection includes other models and is constantly changing in their composition. According to the official site of FC Barcelona, the player treated himself to a new Lamborghini on the occasion of his birthday this year.
Anyone who has seen Neymar off the football pitch also knows his expensive love of jewellery. These usually include quite expensive earrings, because they are set with numerous diamonds, as well as a gold watch.
In Sao Paolo, Neymar owns various condominiums that are collectively worth about $3 million. However, it is not known whether Neymar rented or bought the luxurious villa in Barcelona. When football players change clubs, it is often the case that they first rent an apartment or house to test the location (and the new club) before deciding to buy a property. Neymar could do the same. However, since Neymar is still a regular guest in Brazil with his family, it is not to be assumed that he will sell all his properties in Sao Paola.
Currently, the Brazilian is promoting the Italian brand Police, like other celebrities such as George Clooney, Bruce Willis or David Beckham before him. It is not known how much he earned from the deal.
