Real Madrid v Paris Saint-Germain - UEFA Champions League Round of 16: First Leg

PSG's Neymar in Champions League Last 16 match against Real Madrid


La Liga update on Neymar transfer from PSG to Real Madrid or Barcelona

Spanish La Liga giant club Real Madrid have recently been strongly linked with Brazilian international star Neymar who may move again for another world-record fee. Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane said Neymar could bring €400 million if he leaves PSG. Zidane believes Neymar is good enough to compete for any elite football club in the world. Neymar also said he would like to return to Barcelona. The Brazilizn superstar footballer left Barca for France Ligue 1 side PSG in a world-record €222 million deal last summer. Rumor has it that Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint Germain could allow him to leave for almost double the amount they paid. When asked if Neymar would fit in at Real Madrid, Zidane replied: "Yes. He would fit in every club in the world. Because he is very good. As with many other players."

Zidane was the most expensive player in the world when he joined Real Madrid from Juventus in 2001.

"Well, I'm not going to talk about a player who is not mine. They paid €222m for Neymar, right? It's what it is,” added Zidane. "When Real bought me it was €72m or something like that. I thought then it was insane, and 10 years after that, there's amounts much, much bigger. Probably, in some years, football will reach the €400m amount. Or maybe sooner."

Real Madrid defeated PSG in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash on Tuesday to confirm their place in the quarter-finals. The comprehensive 5-2 aggregate victory keeps them on course to win the competition for a third successive season, but Zidane insists he is not thinking of a hat-trick in Europe's elite club competition. Neymar did not compete in the match due to injury.

"I am only focusing on the game on Saturday against Eibar," added Zidane. "In April we will have time to look ahead and focus on the Champions League. We enjoy the Champions League, we are focused and we are going to give 100 percent throughout the tournament."

Focus on Neymar

Neymar's net worth is estimated at around €110m, which is up from the €90m figure reported prior to his record move to French La Ligue giant club Paris Saint Germain. Neymar earns considerably less than Cristiano Ronaldo, but his earning power should continue to rise. Due to his status on the pitch and great popularity in Europe and Brazil, the former Santos prodigy in on course to become one of the richest players of his generation. The Brazilian surpassed Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo when it comes to weekly salary when he joined Paris Saint-Germain last August. Neymar might not have even touched the halfway point in his footballing career but is already among the best-paid and most marketable athletes on the planet. The PSG star turned 26 in 2018 and has already scored over 250 goals at club level. His decision to leave Barcelona for PSG made him the highest earner in European football. Neymar is currently the second-highest earner in world football behind Carlos Tevez. Neymar earns an astonishing €36.8 million a year at Parc des Princes, which works out at over €700,000 a week, surpassing the €300,000-a-week deal he signed with Barca in 2016. Messi is said to be receiving a new deal at Camp Nou. Tevez played in the Chinese Super League in 2017 and was the only player who topped Neymar's salary. Tevez reportedly earned €38.4m a year at Shanghai Shenhua before returning to Boca Juniors in January 2018. In 2016, Forbes estimated Neymar's earnings from endorsements at $21 million (€18m) annually. In Brazil, whNeymar appears on just about every product. Neymar is an idol to 200 million. Some of his many sponsorship deals include partnerships with Nike, Gillette, Beats Electronics and Red Bull. Neymar has opened the Instituto Projeto Neymar Jr in a neighbourhood he spent part of his childhood in, Jardim Gloria, in the city of Praia Grande. It is a facility that aims to help transform the lives of poorer children in the region through educational, artistic and sporting initiatives that aid their development and give them a chance to reach their full potential. The complex currently serves 2,470 children and their families.

"I could not come to Brazil and not visit the institute," Neymar said. "It is my family's dream and I am always happy every time I visit. It makes me want to keep growing this and doing this the right way."
