Neymar Arrives For Brazil Training In Personalised Black Mercedes Helicopter Worth Up To €13m
Neymar has once again become the centre of attention after arriving for Brazil training in an incredibly expensive helicopter.
Yeah, the Paris Saint-Germain star doesn't keep a low profile. Neymar rocked up to training ahead of the Copa América in his personalised Mercedes helicopter, sporting a slick black paint job and featuring his initials.
According to Diario AS, Airbus said that the 27-year-old Brazilian's Airbus H-145 helicopter has a capacity of up to ten passengers (that doesn't count the pilot or co-pilot, by the way).
The chopper is designed for both civilian use and to also support in medical and rescue services.
It doesn't come cheap either. The Spanish newspaper said that the helicopter's model costs up to €13m, so it's unsurprising that Neymar has decided to show it off in style.
But Neymar wasn't alone for the ride, mainly for how Thiago Silva and Dani Alves were spotted leaving his stylish chopper (what are friends for, eh?).

The custom-made design pays tribute to one of the ex-Barcelona star's favourite superheroes, Batman.
The inside of the helicopter features Batman's logo on the seats, with the black paint on the outside referencing the Dark Knight's choice of colour for his vehicles and costumes.

Neymar was stripped of the Brazil captaincy last week, with his fellow club teammate Dani Alves taking the captain's armband.
"Daniel Alves will be captain of the Brazilian national team in the friendly matches against Qatar and Honduras and in Copa América Brazil 2019," the Brazilian Football Confederation said in a statement at the time.
Brazil head coach Tite announced his 23-man squad for the Copa América last month, with some big names being snubbed like Real Madrid duo Marcelo and Vinícius Júnior and Tottenham Hotspur's Lucas Moura.
For a refresher, posted below is the Brazil squad for the Copa América.
Goalkeepers: Alisson (Liverpool), Ederson (Man City), Cassio (Corinthians).
Defenders: Daniel Alves (PSG), Fagner (Corinthians), Filipe Luís (Atlético Madrid), Alex Sandro (Juventus), Miranda (Inter Milan), Thiago Silva (PSG), Marquinhos (PSG), Éder Militão (Porto/Real Madrid).
Midfielders: Casemiro (Real Madrid), Fernandinho (Man City), Arthur (Barcelona), Allan (Napoli), Lucas Paquetá (Milan), Philippe Coutinho (Barcelona).
Forwards: Neymar (PSG), Richarlison (Everton), David Neres (Ajax), Everton Soares (Grêmio), Roberto Firmino (Liverpool), Gabriel Jesus (Man City).
Brazil will be hosting this year's Copa América, which runs from 14th June to 7th July, and are widely considered by many as the favourites in the competition.
