PSG Signs Neymar For €222m World Record, To Wear Number 10 Jersey

French football club, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have signed Barcelona forward, Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior for a world record 222 million euros.

The deal for the 25-year-old smashes the previous record set when Paul Pogba returned to Manchester United from Juventus for £89m in August 2016.

He will earn 45m euros (£40.7m) a year – 865,000 euros (£782,000) a week – before tax from the initial five-year deal, a total outlay of £400m.

Neymar wore number 11 at Barca with Lionel Messi occupying the 10 shirt, which is the jersey he wears for Brazil’s national team.
