Neymar: best paid player in soccer history

It's official, Neymar has extended his contract with FC Barcelona. According to his lawyer, he is now the highest paid player in the world above Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Despite numerous proposals from Paris Saint-Germain, Neymar will finally stay in Catalonia. Just like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who just revealed his new club, the Brazilian also announced his contract renewal on his Instagram account: "very happy to continue the adventure. Long live Barca and long live Catalonia" he wrote.

The left-winger can be proud of himself since he became the highest paid player in the history of soccer, according to Marcos Motta, his lawyer. The latter did not want to hide it, quite the opposite actually: "Neymar and Barca have officially agreed to an extension and signed the biggest contract in the history of soccer. He is the best paid player in the world" he wrote on Twitter.

If Neymar did not (for obvious reasons) choose to join Paris, he can however thank the club. The Brazilian superstar clearly used PSG's interest towards him to raise his salary. And apparently he negociated well ! Great job.
