Barcelona star Neymar is the latest player to have details of his football contract revealed, after Football Leaks published his current deal with the Primera Division giants.
The Sun shared the revelations from the notorious website, with the Brazilian international earning just over £4 million per year at Barcelona, signing a five-year deal in June 2013 in a transfer deal with Santos.
Neymar will earn a further £851k if he plays at least 45 minutes in 60 per cent of the Blaugrana’s matches and £511k when they qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
Surprisingly, if Barcelona win the Champions League Neymar receives a bonus of £681k, which is the same amount for the Copa del Rey, while winning La Liga gets him only £511k.
However, if the club win the Champions League and Copa del Rey, the premium rises to £851k and if they are able to win the treble (like they did in 2015), Neymar would collect £1.3 million if he played at least half of their matches. And if Neymar wins the Ballon d’Or, he will be awarded £343k.
Meanwhile, according to The Daily Mail, Manchester star Wayne Rooney earns £260,000 each week, which is over £13 million each year, regardless of winning any trophy.
When that news broke, Twitter just lost it…
