8. Financial Strength and Lavish Spending
Neymar at the age of 23 is the 4th highest paid soccer player in the world according to the post of SPORTEOLOGY. Neymar reportedly earns around 28 million dollars per year. Most of this earning comes from sponsors including Nike, L’Oreal, Volkswagen and Castrol. A person earning that much is expected to be a bit lavish, but Neymar spends too much and might be in danger of bankruptcy. Neymar has a mansion in Spain worth 2.5 million dollars and also bought an apartment in Santos for 150 thousand dollars. Neymar rides on luxury cars, both in Spain and Brazil. He also owns a helicopter and air travels mostly by renting a private jet. People don’t like this lavish spending habit of Neymar. PREVIEW FOR #7: Neymar ever since he started his footballing career was grabbing eyeballs. Neymar’s impressive performances in Santos earned him a contract at FC Barcelona, which is probably one of the best clubs in Europe. Neymar is considered to be the best young talent and he is also considered a better player than Van Persie, Rooney, and even Suarez. This thing of Neymar being better than veterans of football does not go well with fans and they hate him for that.
