How much is Neymar salary and earnings?
According to Goal.com, Neymar is the second-highest paid footballer on the planet. Carlos Tevez is the only one ahead of him.
Neymar Jr earns an amazing €36.8 million a year at Parc des Princes, which is over €700,000 a week.
That beats the €300,000-a-week contract he signed with Barcelona two years ago and moves him far ahead of Ronaldo and Messi, even if the pay rise Messi signed last November in the new deal at Camp Nou is taken into consideration.
Tevez made the most of the gold rush in the Chinese Super League in 2017 and was, for a little bit, the only player who exceeded Neymar salary. Tevez was earning €38.4m a year at Shanghai Shenhua before rejoining Boca Juniors earlier this year.
According to Forbes, Neymar's earnings from endorsements is put at $21 million (€18m) annually.
Some of Neymar's many sponsorship deals comprise partnerships with Nike, Gillette, Beats Electronics and Red Bull.
Neymar also tried his hand on a few businesses other than playing football, including featuring in the new ‘xXx: Return of Xander Cage' movie and launching of his own emojis for download.
As part of charity, Neymar Jr set up a facility aimed at helping to transform the lives of poor children through educational, artistic and sporting initiatives. The complex is known as Instituto Projeto Neymar Jr, established in his childhood neighborhood in Jardim Gloria, the city of Praia Grande.
The institute currently serves 2,470 kids and their families.
