According to the Spanish newspaper, Neymar has cost the Ligue 1 club an astonishing €489,228,117.

The aforementioned figure takes into account the €222m transfer fee paid to Barcelona alongside the €43,334,400 pre-tax salary that PSG agreed to in Neymar’s initial contract.

El Mundo added that a sixth-year bonus salary option of €50,556,117 was included in Neymar’s previous deal.

The PSG superstar has been on international duty with Brazil this month for his country’s World Cup qualifying matches.

Neymar previously revealed that he questioned his desire to keep playing at a professional level, but he insisted that he will “never lose the passion for football.”

He told Gaffer in January: “I will never lose the passion for football, but I have had moments that I did want to stop playing.

“Once, I reached a point of asking myself why I should keep playing if they do not like it.

“I used to go home hot-headed and then remembered everything I've done to get me here.

“The love I have for football and all those things just calmed me down and brought me back to reality. Because I'm very lucky. Truly. I have achieved a lot of things in my career that made me and my family incredibly happy.

“Just debuting for Santos FC, winning the first title with Santos, winning the Libertadores Cup was super important as well. Joining Barcelona was a dream of mine since I was a kid, winning the Champions League, my arrival in Paris. These moments will always remain special to me.”
