World Record Transfer Deal Close! Has Neymar Betrayed Barcelona?
Neymar will become the most expensive footballer on earth when he completes his protracted move to PSG. Skysports are reporting that the player has agreed a 5 year deal worth £515,000-a-week after tax with the French club.
With such great talent, he was privileged to have played alongside great players such as Messi and Suarez. Under a very short spell at Barcelona since joining in 2013, Neymar has won the lot, the Champions League, La Liga, Copa Del Rey, UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup. But has not many individual award, with all Barcelona glory credits going to Messi.
In 2014, Barcelona were alleged to have evaded tax in its signing of star Brazilian Neymar and therefore was handed a 2 market transfer ban. Neymar have always been a subject of transfer speculation, with Manchester United coming close to signing the Brazilian last summer.
There has been no time Neymar would come out to refute claims of transfer talks, with his father Ribeiro always at the center of negotiation. The loyalty of the player have always been questioned. Barcelona recently blocked a bonus due to the player when they feel he is being greedy and try to force a move to PSG
Despite the fee, Barcelona would be so disappointed in the player whom they have done so much for. It was clear that the club was unwilling to sell but there is little they could do to stop the transfer especially when PSG has met the player’s release clause.
All in all, it is a good business for Barcelona and they can now turn attention to Liverpool’s Coutinho or any other good playmaker that would cost them less
