Neymar joins PSG in world record fee sh. 27.3bn


French giants Paris-Saint-Germain PSG have signed Neymar Jr. in a world record fee £200m (Sh27.3b) from Spanish side Barcelona.

The Brazilian superstar penned a five year contract at PSG with a basic salary of £26.8m-a-year (€30m) after tax, around £515,000-a-week (Sh70,338,995)

The transfer eclipses the previous record set when Paul Pogba rejoined Manchester United from Juventus for £89m last summer.

Neymar won seven major trophies in his four seasons at the Nou Camp, including the Champions League once and La Liga twice.

The 25-year-old joined Barcelona for £48.6m from his home club Santos in 2013.
