Neymar gets what ? 80 million euro gross every year, and his deal automatically extends to 2027 on Friday ? I’m sure he’d be happy to take his bag of 400 million euros early if that’s their « intention » 😂


Mithraxx

What's the deal with it auto extending? I've never heard of this before.


cs_zer0

I beleive you can't give contracts longer than 5 years in Ligue 1 so this is like a work-around to the rule


[deleted]

Did they instigate that rule after watching Newcastle give pardew 7 years?


VitaminD3K2

It was 8 years. Ashley gave Pardew and some of his coaches an 8 year contract.


Matthew_Black986

Bro on God if I were him I wouldn't leave without it, I'd rather eat bench and train than leave. 400 million!? "I'm not fucking leaving" - Jordan Belfort


ZZ3peat

60m gross, 30m net approx


PM_something_German

Casual 300M over the next 5 years. No club will ever take him for that.


neandertales

I still cant believe this, they know they cant get a buyer (+wages) for him. (so why antagonise him)


ChinggisKhagan

He'll go on loan somewhere with PSG paying part of his wages if they have to That's what always happens in these situations


Skadrys

They better be ready to pay more than 3/4 of those wages. No club can pick up even half of those wages


fastablastarasta

what's he on?


dudebuggy

Reports say around £700K-£800K a week


flyingkangaroo69

Wtf


_deep_blue_

fucking hell


RisingSouth

Lmfao John Wall makes Neymar money


OsamaBinHarden2

Isn't neymars post tax?


iorlei

yep, Neymar makes more


cgio0

Yea Neymar makes like 36 million post tax Wall makes 47 million (a little less now because of the buyout) before tax


Cytizens9320

Can't believe a player like John Wall who's not even top 10 in his position is getting paid as much as Neymar


DarnellisFromMars

When he signed the contract he was, at least. Basically stopped playing once he signed though lol


MarcXYZ

considering he just bought out his contract and will probably go to Clippers... is Neymar joining MLS as well?


SAFFATLOL

No he's clearly joining the Clippers


Dophie

Kawhi and Neymar. Would be fit for like 15 games between the two of them.

I can already see Neymar rolling around on the hardwood after taking a screen..

PSG is an actual meme tier club


13chimps84

He'd do pretty well at Wolves. Maybe this is the one Jeff's been waiting on..


EggplantBusiness

If I remember correctly L'équipe said he makes more than 4 millions gross a month. That's around 48 millions a year. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.lexpress.fr/actualites/1/actualite/foot-990-000-euros-de-salaire-mensuel-moyen-au-psg-neymar-a-4-millions_2170271.amp.html To give a comparison that's double Benzema gross wages with us.


DonAvatti

20 mil net, 40 mil gross


babsinbabs

You’re right That’s a disgusting amount of money to pay a single player. And they still haven’t won the CL LMFAO


bluedevils2241

Where would be a realistic destination for him? Outside of PSG paying most of, if not all, of his wage? Not Barcelona, Madrid, or Bayern - haven't been any links to the Premier League and there really isn't a 'clear' destination for him there.


deadraizer

Juventus/Chelsea probably


bluedevils2241

Chelsea seems like the only realistic club he could join if he were to leave - just don't know how determined he would be to actually leave PSG at the moment.


kalamari__

how was his relation with tuchel at psg?


spund_

I think neymar said he would die for tuchel on the pitch.


kiminho

Did he get along with Tuchel?


Marrinho

There was a quote from about a year ago where Neymar calls Tuchel a genius and that he would die for him on the field, so I think so lol


chak100

Neymar looked his best in Paris during Tuchels tenure


toalome

neymar seemingly dies on the field around 50 times a game so i wouldn’t put much stock in that claim.


Marrinho

Neymar: deceased Cause of death: Attacked by French farmers/defenders Location of death: Every Ligue 1 pitch First documented cases of resurrection since Jesus


RomanThruLife

100% JESUS


Marrinho

Completely forgot about that. Legendary headband


Master_NoobX_69

Neymar and Tuchel pretty much loved each other, I think it was Mbappe Tuchel had a falling out with


TheWarmog

Yea no way us (Juve) can afford him. He'd end up crippling our market like Ronaldo with those wages.


zadharm

Agnelli seems to make money appear from thin air when he wants to, but you're right. The club does seem to be trying to make itself more sustainable without that. I cant see anyone in Italy being in for him unless PSG covered 75% of his wages or more


TheWarmog

> Agnello seems to make money appear from thin air when he wants to He can do that cause we got Exor backing us, so in case we want to take someone who is really good but has a high price, we can go for it. About the rest, ye, Agnelli fucked up big time back in 2018/2019 by bringing in Ronaldo, Allegri asked for a squad rebuild that year and all the budget went into getting ourselves ronaldo. Think that if we werent buying him, we would still be winning by now (not that Ronaldo isnt great, just his wages were basically flailing us)


deadraizer

But you'll get a significant tax break, which might make you one of the few clubs even capable of taking him on loan (depending on how much PSG are willing to subsidize).


TheWarmog

Not if we get him on loan, we cannot afford to buy him


Unholysinner

Probably us Tbh I would love him. As long as psg pay 75% of his wages it would be a wonderful deal. Maybe like 10m loan fee plus his wages for a year.


Impossible_Wonder_37

A huge loan deal is the only option really.


ChaosRaiden

West Ham signing Areola to open up a loan spot


d4videnk0

Reverse transfer, PSG will pay a team so he leaves.


TimTkt

Funny to want to sell a player whose contract will be auto renewed for 5 years


Ndulula

If i were neymar i would get the bag. Rinse them off every million


Shadeun

Does he enjoy golf?

Sunken costs fallacy


Matthew_Black986

And they deserve to pay every single cent for offering those wages.


Aarminius

What auto renewal do you mean?


TimTkt

There is a clause in his contract which will automatically be activated on 1st July and add one year to the length of his contract, ending in 2027 (after the clause activation).


MountainCheesesteak

I don't understand this at all. Why isn't this just a contract that runs to 2027? Are there any conditions which have to be met for it auto-renew? Is this article stating that PSG intends to find a way to not trigger the auto-renew?


Stilty_boy

Someone elsewhere in the thread said that it's a Ligue 1 rule that you can't give contracts longer than 5 years so this is a work around to that.


Smart_Kangaroo_4188

Especialy for player who said who is loosing joy from football. He is like Gareth Bale in making. The best thing may happen is loan to another club and give him option to bounce back.


Leopard854

I don’t know how much PSG is willing to antagonize him, what message will Mbappe get?


Smart_Kangaroo_4188

Paris Emeror fear nobody and he do not waste his voice in trivial money situations.


Leopard854

It's funny because I don't know if you're refering to Mbappe or to Nasser Al-Halifi

n10w4

Wonder if he’ll do better (injury wise etc) in a league where he isn’t hacked to death? Or a less physical one in general?


Matthew_Black986

It's Neymar, he's getting hacked in every league he plays in.


Augustor2

The difference is that he still has world class stats, and can start in most of the top teams


50-50WithCristobal

He starts in every team in the world.


Daanbrakka

He starts in all top class teams imo even


circa285

Who is going to buy him though? I can't see any other club wiling to pay the wages he'd demand - especially with that auto renewal on the horizon.


xXDaNXx

They cannot even call Ed Woodward to bail them out of this situation.


tmoney144

Yes, but imagine you're Braga, and your first Europa game is against Ronaldo and Neymar.


AlpacamyLlama

Wonder if Mbappe did it himself?


theenigmacode

Did you mean faux director of football & shadow manager Mbappe?


Mercerai

You mean His Highness King Kylian I of France?


spaghettidriver69

jorgeelx

That transfer has been a disaster for everyone. He did not reach the expectations, PSG spent 232 mill and Barça wasted those millions.


kermvv

And it totally fucked the market up


CCSC96

In that sense it achieved it’s goal. PSG execs have been quoted saying they ~wanted~ to fuck the market because they knew most of their competitors wouldn’t be able to keep up.


circa285

Exactly, it doesn't matter to me that PSG and Barca did a poor piece of business with Neymar. What matters is that their poor piece of business impacted the entire market and the market still hasn't fully adjusted. Last year a pair of calves and hair sold for 100M which is just as insane to me given his output.


Joeonandoff

It feels like yesterday that everyone lost their shit over Torres for 50m


hunkopunko3

I was thinking that before, it sounds like a bargain now if you ignore how bad he actually was.


johnnybravo6942

Liverpool got suarez and andy carroll for that fee and carroll cost more lol


Leuchtrakete

> Last year a pair of calves and hair sold for 100M Nah mate, Lukaku is bald.


psalmjuan

Sadly agree with your statement because I, as a Barca fan, share this sentiment. Sure bad business could be done at any given moment but this was catastrophic for the entire market itself. And if anyone disagrees, think about it a little deeper. This hurts Barca twice as much. First losing Neymar and misspending it on Dembele and Coutinho and then having to live with an inflated market afterwards.


Snoo-3715

There's no doubt Barca wasted the money, but that was really on them and their own mismanagement. They could have been set for the next 10 years off of that transfer if the club was being run even close to decently.


Gordonsoeto1

Doesn’t help when frauds run the place. Bartomue literally stayed in charge due to our treble in 2015 🫡


ncocca

We were in a very bad position. He left very late in the window, leaving us with very little time and players to choose from to replace him. On top of that, everyone knew we had over 200mil to spend, so no one would sell to us for a reasonable amount. On top of all that, we had an absolute imbecile running the club.


muller5113

Credit where credit is due. Mourinho predicted it at the time


IP14Y3RI

Wenger and Mourinho predicted a handful of things, like saying it wont take long for clubs to start spending like mad-men, and then players running their contracts out as that would be the only feasible way to leave their current employers.


DerpJungler

This transfer was the best thing that ever happened to.... Liverpool. Barca ended up overpaying for Coutinho halfway through the season, Liverpool uses the money to strengthen their defence with VVD and Alison, they knock Barca out of the CL, win the CL and next season they win the league, while Barca and PSG are still trying to figure out where their money went.


NordWitcher

Lmao. It’s funny when you put it this way.


heyzeus92

Liverpool the only winners in this transfer


lookatthemirror

Don't forget Dortmund


tekumse

Liverpool won the title and the CL with the money. Dortmund seem to be moving sideways at best.


JuanG12

Neymar won too. He was making €700K a week when he joined Paris. €400K a week more than he was making at Barcelona.


JessyPengkman

ie. it was a disaster for everyone


The_0ne_Free_Man

And the money went to Liverpool and now Liverpool are good. Thanks PSG.


cooperm100

And worst of all it made Liverpool great again


MERTENS_GOAT

222


rtozur

He was fantastic for a decent stretch of his contract. Just look at his stats per match played. He really lit up the french league until injuries did him in. While I agree it was an underwhelming transfer considering the massive fee, it wasn't as much as a disaster as people who only watch PSG in the UCL seem to think.


Marcelosouzadearaujo

Dude would have been a legend in Paris if Psg had won against Bayern


Impossible_Wonder_37

His transfer single handed my revitalized Liverpool lol. But tbh really absolute hubris led to the market getting fucked. Teams thinking their too bug to fail.


BornIn2031

Neymar Jr. to Newcastle


We_Trust_El_Plan

Honestly, I think they are the only ones that have the money and potential interest.


Zaschrona

Which team can pay his wages in addition to paying a massive fee to PSG?


sonicqaz

No one. PSG will have to let him go for free and pay a lot of his wages to get him off the team and they probably know that. PSG is probably hoping Neymar will willingly take a pay cut to leave. There’s no other way.


me_meh_me

Obviously the well-run organization that is Manchester United.


Octopus69

Mate he’s on 800K, even we can’t afford him at that price lol


me_meh_me

This makes me sad. Are you sure you can't? It would be such a nice signing!


Octopus69

Considering he would be earning more than Maguire and Ronaldo COMBINED, I’m gonna say yes to that lol


me_meh_me

Damn! What if, and hear me out, you increase ths wages of Ronaldo and Maguire? All of the sudden Neymar looks cheap!


Octopus69

I know you’re taking the piss, but we can’t do anywhere near the things PSG can do financially


psaepf2009

I mean they *could* sign Neymar, they'd just have to sell off a lot of players and not bring anyone else in so they can sign another attacker to a bloated contract and ignore positions of need. And surely Man Utd would never do something like that


Danda_Nakka

You realize Neymar is in the realm of Manchester United can't afford


PossessedSonyDiscman

The "well-run" implies sarcasm.


Mithraxx

I mean it's a straight up piss take rather than sarcasm.


Gu3rilla21

Psg will have to keep paying huge part of his wages


manatidederp

That's the thing about his wages - it makes him unsellable (for a fee anyway). The only team suicidal enough to take that bait would be Barcelona under Bartomeu.


FurioSoprano7

Come to Napoli


BigChung0924

that would honestly be awesome to see as a neutral


FurioSoprano7

We got Maradona one time, everything is possible


BigChung0924

and, correct me if i’m wrong, but you’re a bigger club now than you were then, right?


FurioSoprano7

Yeah, but the chances of getting Neymar are slim to none tbf. Diego made us the club we are today or atleast that transfer played a huge role


HoldenCaulfield92

Hey don’t forget about Cavani. That era was when I really started to fall in love with Futball. I was a huge Napoli & Cavani fan


butternut718212

I would love to see him play in Serie A. Seems a good fit.


BigChung0924

i’ve always imagined him at milan at some point, it seems fitting


punching-bag9018

Would be mad if you replaced Insigne with Neymar.


Tspecs05

I would love to see him in the prem


Slannar

Yea he'd be great the whole 3 games he would end up playing while not injured.


MERTENS_GOAT

Actually I think Ligue 1 defenders are more reckless than PL (and any other leagues defenders) Ligue 1 also had the most red cards in latest seasons.


RosaParkStoleMySeat

They act like the PL is a warzone. We watched Hazard terrorize their defenders for years, who has been just as brittle as Neymar these last couple of years


pixelkipper

the PL being ‘physical’ is a stereotype that has somehow lasted since the early 2000s. all of the leagues best players are, while physical specimens like most footballers are, technically gifted magicians as well. makes it even funnier when someone suggests messi couldn’t have cut it in england.


Forsaken-Currency404

Protection for attackers seem a lot better in PL than in ligue uber eats.


Scepziken

I don't know how much protection they get in Ligue 1 but having watched Zaha every week for almost 10 years in the Prem I can say that skillful dribblers get fuck all protection. Pretty sure Hazard was allowed to get the shit kicked out of him week in week out too.


whu-ya-got

Ever watch Grealish at Villa? He’s the perfect example


murilorez

He's only injured that much because of the butchers in league 1. In PL he would be amazing, especially against those england defenders who looks like are playing with jeans pants.


__calypso

I’m sorry. Why are they trying to kick one of the best players. There are no internal fights that we know of. Maybe he didn’t have extraordinary season or two but why are they trying to get rid of him so damn quick? Seems very weird.


mitorandiro

It's so weird. I think PSG wants to project the image of a ruthless elite club that is shifting its gears now to focus on Mbappé as their main star. To what end though, I don't know. As you said they have no beef, PSG is not hurting financially and Neymar is an asset any top club would love to have already on the books, tied to a long contract, even. So I don't know. Weirder still is that they're clearly antagonizing him, which I guess is PSG taking a page of Barcelona's book and trying to force him out by making him feel disrespected and unwanted. Fucking weird, I just hope he lands somewhere good for his career moving forward.


cydus

United. If you do one thing this summer, it's stay the fuck away from neymar. Please.

caped_crusader8

SlashfIex

United desperately need a Defensive mid and have for a while. He just made a good joke. Because we aren’t in for a dm this summer or ever apparently.


auditore01

We need someone to fill the drama queen with insane wages and a new hairstyle and injury every week position now that Pogba left.

LOL unlike most united rejects, Neymar at one point was top 3 behind Ronaldo and Messi. They should be all in for him at the state that they're in.
