This article is about Neymar’s net worth. Neymar is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Spanish club FC Barcelona and the Brazil national team as a forward or winger and serves as the captain of the national team.
He has been playing soccer since he was five years old on his hometown’s futsal court. He first played for Portuguesa Santista at age eight in São Paulo state, then joined São Vicente in the youth category of ‘crowning’ team Santos FC where he impressed scouts from leading European clubs with his skills. At this point in time, it became more apparent to one and all that this kid had the makings of a soccer maestro with his dribbling and persistent efforts in taking on defenders. He won the 2011 South American Footballer of the Year award at just 17 years old, making him the youngest footballer to win this title.
In 2013, Neymar was ranked as the fourth-most valuable player in Europe by Transfermarkt, behind Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and teammate Andrés Iniesta; he was also listed in the Time 100 by Time magazine that year. His playing style and ability have drawn comparisons to former Brazil and Santos forward Pelé. Since 2009, he has been sponsored by sportswear company Nike and features in their commercials. In November 2012 he appeared in FIFA’s “11 against” 11 video game as a striker. In June 2013, Neymar was ranked as the fifth-best player in the world by The Guardian.
In August 2016, Neymar transferred from Santos to Barcelona for a fee of €57 million plus an additional €9 million in variable fees, signing a five-year deal. His transfer release clause is set at €200 million but can be negotiated down with Santos to undisclosed levels. He won the European Golden Shoe and was named one of three nominees for the 2015 FIFA Ballon d’Or, eventually losing out to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo respectively. On 9 September 2018, he made his UEFA Champions League debut against Celtic FC and became the first footballer ever who scored on his debut for this club.
