Numbers from Neymar’s big deal to move to Paris Saint-Germain are out, and they are massive.

The Brazilian superstar will reportedly make $1,025,000 per week at the Parc des Princes for a -- wait for it -- princely sum of about $54 million per year.

That means Neymar, at age 25, will be the highest paid soccer player in the world, surpassing the $813,000 per week Carlos Tevez makes in China.

Neymar was given leave from Barcelona training on Wednesday to help sort out his future.
From the BBC:

Barcelona have told the French club they must pay his 222m euro (£198m) fee “in full” and they are understood to be ready to meet his release clause.

It means PSG’s total outlay across the initial five-year deal will come to £400m.

That’s about $475 million over the five years of the deal, quite an investment for a player who will now attempt to prove he’s as big a star as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He’ll also bear the burden of doing what Zlatan Ibrahimovic could not and fulfill PSG’s dream of a Champions League title.
