Ever heard of Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior? He’s a footballer from Brazil who has been playing for Barcelona and is looking like he will be moving to Paris St-Germain. He is 25 years-old.
Barcelona are looking to be paid £198,000,000 for his services. Yes, £198m. They will then pay him £40,300,000 a year before tax. That is £775,477 a week. Yes, a week.
He’ll be kicking a ball around a field for a fraction of the 90 minutes each game he plays. Heaven only knows what that will work out to be, per minute, for each game he plays!
