Football Leaks has revealed that Neymar can expect to earn at least €49.5m (£39.7m, $56.3m) during his five-year deal with Barcelona. The whistle-blowing website has revealed the current contract of the Brazilian international at the Nou Camp, which will see his basic €5m a season salary doubled due to a number of special clauses.
Barcelona signed Neymar in summer 2013 from Santos after beating the likes of Real Madrid and Chelsea for his signature. The La Liga giants initially said they paid €57.1m to the Brazilian outfit, but were later forced to admit the real price was €86.2m. That controversy, following an investigation by Spanish prosecutors, forced club president Sandro Rosell to resign in 2014.
Football Leaks has now detailed that Neymar then also received an €8.5m signing-on bonus.
The contract, released in full by several Spanish publications such as AS, states that his basic salary is just €5m a season. However, the numerous add-ons mean he will earn at least €49.5m over the duration of his five-year deal, with Barcelona guaranteeing to pay the difference if he doesn't earn that figure by the end of the contract.
The special clauses include a €1.062m bonus for Neymar if he plays 60 percent of the games in a season, €850,000 for conquering the Champions League, €637,500 for winning La Liga title and €425,000 if he wins the FIFA Ballon d'Or. He will pocket an extra €1.5m if Barcelona win the treble as they did last season.
Football Leaks also confirmed that his current release clause is set at €190m, with recent reports claiming both Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United are considering attempting to lure him away from Barcelona.
Barcelona, meanwhile, also include a number of behaviour clauses in the deal which, for instance, oblige Neymar to learn Catalan in order to help him fully integrate with the Spanish region.
