He will earn €10.8 million per year in terms of a basic salary and a further €51 million will be paid to Neymar's father's business and to the man personally for "services rendered."
Marca claims to possess seven key documents that concern the details of the Brazilian's move from Santos last summer which, if found to be accurate, would confirm Neymar's status as the world's highest-paid player, with earnings going to he and his family of over €400,000 per week.
