It’s no wonder Neymar jumped at the chance to join Saudi’s Al-Hilal.
Not only is his base salary astronomical, but the gig comes with a laundry list of perks and bonuses.
Neymar da Silva Santos Junior will be finishing a six-year stint with Paris Saint-Germain to join the Riyadh-based team.
The Brazilian reportedly signed a two-year contract which comes with an annual salary of about USD $100 million.
But that’s just the beginning for the 31-year-old star forward.
The contract comes with a bunch of crazy perks that sound almost too good to be true.
For starters, Neymar will have a private plane at his disposal and a mansion with all the staff he could possibly want.
According to the list reported by FootMercato, the player will also get a significantly higher bonus for his social media use than his talents on the field.
He will reportedly make a $87,000 (€80,000) bonus for every Al-Hilal win and an absurd $545,000 (€500,000) for every post or story he creates on social media that promotes Saudi Arabia.
Neymar’s move to Saudi follows Cristiano Ronaldo’s highly publicized move from Manchester United to Saudi’s Al-Nassr.
His contract with the Saudi side is so wild it almost makes Neymar’s look like an afterthought.
Ronaldo signed on with Al-Nassr for a reported €200 million ($220m) per season.
The deal has seen Ronaldo become the highest-paid soccer player in the history of the sport.
Under the contract, Ronaldo is reportedly bound to Al Nassr and Saudi Arabia until 2030.
Neymar and Ronaldo join a growing list of players to have moved to Saudi to play for the Saudi Pro League in recent years.
Since Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have all moved to play in Saudi.
And considering the money Saudi’s throwing at players, we’ll likely see a few more big names added to that list.
