FIVE Reasons Neymar Is Worth £198m
There haa been a hot debate around the plausibility or otherwise of Brazilian superstar commanding a hefty transfer fee of £198m.
The money PSG are willing to part with to get one player can assemble 13 of the teams playing in the English Premier League.
Bounce Sports gives you five Reasons why spending the cash on Neymar is worth every single penny.
Aside pockets of Barcelona fans who are livid at the moment with what they term an act of betrayal, the Brazil superstar is a shining diamond that simple sells itself.
Neymar is the third-most marketable player in the world behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, according to the Brandtix Sport Index.
If well managed and maximised, Neymar is guaranteed to give high returns.
It is worthy to note that Neymar has nearly four times as many fans as PSG's 43.3m social followers and numerous posts on his Instagram account have surpassed 2 million likes.
At just 25 years, it is very safe to say Neymar is yet to play his best football.
If what he has showed in the colours of Barcelona is just a tip of the ice berg, the real deal can only be imagined and that is what PSG are splashing the cash on.
On the pitch statistics
Neymar is no actor or a comedian, he is a footballer and his work space is the football pitch.
Amazing stats collated last season shows just how prolific the 25-year old is.
As showcased on Sky Sports, Neymar's stats surpass the average forward in Europe's top five leagues.
Apart from goals, Neymar is the king when it comes to crosses, dribbles, free kicks and passes. He is that good and deserves all the hype.
PSG to penetrate new markets with Neymar
The impending arrival of Neymar is certainly going to widen the scope of PSG whose influence on the European market cannot be compared to the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona who have millions of fans from Ukraine to China, and even in Nigeria.
PSG had it rough last season and were not even able to win the domestic league that was hitherto seen as their birthright.
In the Champions League, they did the unthinkable; allowing a four-goal lead to be upturned by a Neymar-Messi inspired Barcelona team.
Now they have Neymar who should score enough goals to keep PSG in Europe's top flight.
The Brazilian has already won two La Liga titles, the Champions League and scored 105 goals in 186 appearances in all competitions since joining Barcelona from Santos in 2009.
On the world stage, Neymar has already racked up 77 senior caps and netted 52 goals for Brazil.
Neymar's prowess as a football star has earned this endoresement from arguably the world greatest footballer of all time and 3-time World Cup Winner - Pele.
"Technically, Neymar is way better than Ronaldo, but he [Ronaldo] is better when using the head.
"You don't see Neymar scoring with the head, and that counts [in Ronaldo's favour]", Pele said.
