As of August 2023, Neymar is estimated to have a net worth of around $250 million (£196m) as per figures from Celebrity Net Worth.

But how did Neymar’s finances skyrocket sporadically into becoming one of the richest footballers in the world?

When Neymar was just 17 years old, he signed his first major contract with the Brazilian team Santos. 

This contract reportedly paid him $1.7 million per year. 

A year later, Santos attempted to extend Neymar’s contract with the club offering him a $20 million long-term contract extension.

However, Neymar rejected the offer because he knew the competition in the Brazilian leagues would not be as good as in the European leagues, and had his sights on becoming the best player in the world. 

Neymar would end up signing a short-term contract with Santos that paid him $4 million per year, but allowed him to seek new options in the meantime. 

In 2013, Neymar signed a reported $119 million contract with Barcelona

This mega-deal paid him an average of $15 million per year in salary, making him one of the highest-paid Brazilian footballers in the world.

 Neymar also earned an estimated $16 million per year from endorsement deals.

That brought his total annual earnings to roughly $30 million between 2013 and 2017.

On August 2, 2017, Neymar signed a mouth-watering deal that saw him from Catalan giants FC Barcelona to French club Paris Saint-Germain.

 Under the terms of the deal, Neymar would earn a record-breaking $1.02 million per week, roughly $53 million per year in salary alone.
