Neymar Signs $265 Million Contract ... With Paris Saint-Germain

Neymar has just become the highest paid soccer player in the world -- signing a deal with Paris Saint-Germain worth over $265 MILLION!!
That's more than Cristiano Ronaldo. More than Messi. More than Pogba.
The 25-year-old Brazilian superstar will reportedly rake in around $657,000 per week with PSG over the course of 5 years ... totaling more than $265 mil in wages and bonuses.
And that doesn't even include endorsements.
PSG really, REALLY wanted him -- and paid a record $263 mil transfer fee to Barcelona just to buy him out of his contract with them.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
It's the highest transfer fee ever -- smashing the previous record held by Manchester United, which paid a $117 million transfer fee for Pogba from Juventus.
In total -- salary plus transfer fee -- PSG came out of pocket roughly $528 million to get Neymar.
FYI, Neymar is the only soccer athlete Michael Jordan has signed to his Jordan Brand label -- apparently, he knows what he's doing.
