Details Of Neymar's Contract With Nike Have Been Revealed

Details Of Neymar's Contract With Nike Have Been Revealed

It's no surprise that PSG were willing to spend £198 million on Neymar last season. As well as having loads of money and him being a very good footballer, he's also one hell of a marketing cash cow and Nike pay him a fair whack for that.

Nike have a long lasting relationship with Brazilian footballer that is very controversial. In the past they've been questioned over just how much influence they have on the most successful national side in the history of the World Cup.

Check out Messi's tribute to Neymar:

There were even some conspiracy theories that the kit manufacturer were partially behind Ronaldo playing in the 1998 World Cup final after the Brazilian initially backed out because of illness.

Now they sponsor Brazil's current superstar Neymar and Brazilian news outlet UOL Esporte have revealed some of the details of his contract.

According to the website the PSG forward earns a $1million bonus for winning the Ballon d'Or, $50,000 for winning the World Cup and a further $200,000 if he's Player of the Tournament.

The website says that in 2011, when the deal was signed, that clubs in category A are Chelsea, Milan, Manchester United, Arsenal, Juventus, Bayern, Internazionale, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

That suggests that PSG would be in category B, which is teams who play in Champions League quarter finals, but that may have been renegotiated since considering the rise of Neymar's current club.

The deal currently runs till 2022 and Neymar earns an extra $1 million for each Ballon d'Or he wins, so he could be a very rich man by then, as if he won't be anyway.
