Neymar’s transfer was made official yesterday, the Brazilian star having part of a presentation at the Camp Nou. After several attempts that have been spread over several years, Barcelona managed to win the race with Real Madrid and to acquire one of the best players of the moment.
Josep Bartomeu, vice president of the Catalan football club, made public some of the figures underlying the agreement with Neymar and Santos. Thus, according to the Brca official, the Catalan team payed 57 million for Neymar, and the player signed an agreement valid for five seasons.
Given that he was one of the most courted football players of the planet, Barcelona set a buyout clause for the footballer. No less than 190 million euros should pay any club that would want Neymar. Also, the understanding between Santos and the European club provides two friendly games, one in Brazil and one at the Camp Nou.
Messi has a buyout clause of 250 million euros, while Ronaldo holds the record in this regard: 1 billion euros.
