Even with his 30 million euros of annual salary, Neymar is not the highest-paid footballer in the world. The first place of the ranking is with a footballer evolving in the Chinese championship. And it is none other than the Argentine Carlos Tevez who evolves in Shanghai Shenhua.
This summer, the Brazilian striker made talk about him with the hallucinatory figures of the salary offered by Paris Saint-Germain to convince him to leave Barça. 30 million euros, this is the annual salary that will affect Neymar this season. However, he can not boast of being the best paid footballer. He is beaten by Carlos Tevez, who evolves under the colors of the Chinese club of Shanghai Shenhua.
The 33-year-old Argentine striker could not refuse an offer from his leaders. He is paid € 38 million a year, eight million euros more than Neymar, but his adventure in China is turning to the fiasco.
Argentina’s Lionel Messi’s team-mate scored only two goals in eleven games. Given the salary he receives, the supporters of the club, are far from accepting this poor performance of the player. This result, however, is due to an injury that drove the Argentinian out of the field for quite a while.
According to the new club coach, Tevez is not physically fit due to his current weight.
As for the leaders of the PSG, they do not have the feeling of having made a bad deal by recruiting Neymar. Neymar receives € 576,000 per week, or € 82,191 per day or € 57 per minute.
Neymar’s stats since his arrival in Ligue 1 (5 goals and 5 assists in 6 games) have produced an investment that has borne fruit.
