Neymar deal worth nearly 450m including wages and bonuses.

That's an INSANE amount of money being spent for just one guy. Jesus Christ. This could be the transfer of a lifetime?

Any football fans here? What do you make of this?

He clearly wanted out from under Messi's shadow. PSG wanted to make a splash and they got their guy. Still don't think they win Champion's league.
Thank you, Isaiah!!!

I still can't get my head around a deal that's over of a billion (Australian) for one guy.

He'd better hope he can flourish at PSG. Sure he's one of the worlds best, but that kind of money means that PSG is gunning for the Champions League, which I still think they don't win.

It's just an insane amount of money they threw there. Jesus. I think they get it back int two - three years from all the money Neymar is going to bring, but still.

Now, if they also get Alexis Sanchez, they're going to be insane. IDK if they are still in it on the Alexis stuff, but a Neymar, Alexis, Cavani attack with Veratti behind? That is going to be nuts. Still no defence, but man...

This is a Champions League move.

With Monaco losing THREE key players already, and might also lose Thomas Lemar and Kylian Mbappe, they won't be worrying about a domestic title.

They are gunning for the UCL.

From what I've read, Alexis prefers Man City. Maybe Neymar changes that?

I think PSG have obviously improved, but they have other holes they need to address. They may develop the best attack in the world, but you still have to stop the other team from scoring.
Thank you, Isaiah!!!

450 million? For how many years, or is that not how these contracts work?  I know nothing about soccer/football pay scales.

It's all inclusive. Salaries, bonuses and the transfer fee.

Basically, PSG had to pay about 100+ million (not sure about the full amount) to Barcelona, which is Neymar's release clause (think of it as a buyout) and had to sign him to a contract they agreed upon.

It's a LOT of money.

We (Arsenal) are not selling Alexis to Man City, or any PL club, per Wenger. But this has not stopped us from selling our players to PL clubs before, so we'll see.

I do hope that PSG pounces on Alexis and we just cash in. I understand not selling him to a PL opponent, but if a Ligue 1 club wants him, sell right away.

That defence is really shady. Two young players in Aurier and Kurzawa on the full backs. They just signed Dani Alves, what does he have left? What does Thiago Silva have left? Marquinhos? Meh. Matuidi and Krychowiak can hold that midfield, I think that's solid. The back line is very shady, though

But check out their attack...

Lucas Moura
Julian Draxler
Angel Di Maria
Edinson Cavani
Marco Veratti
Hatem Ben Afra

And now you add Neymar to that mix... That's ridiculous...

So it looks to be about 40 million a year for 5 years, plus the fee to his old club?  And maybe some bonuses?  Effectively 90 million a year for a player?

My goodness.

The fee to Barcelona is about 198 million in it of itself. The rest would be Neymar's wages.

The NBA is probably looking at this and going "we want some of that". LOL
