Neymar turned down jet, €40m

One of Neymar's agents has claimed that the Brazilian held two meetings with Paris Saint-Germain in the summer before eventually agreeing to extend his contract with Barcelona.

Neymar, 24, penned a new five-year deal at the beginning of July with Barca, but Wagner Ribeiro says his client could have earned much more money if he had left for the French capital.

According to Ribeiro, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi met with the player and his father in Ibiza at the beginning of June and again in Brazil later that same month.

"It was me that brought Nasser to Sao Paulo," he said in an interview with ESPN Brasil.

"[PSG] were willing to pay [the €190 million release clause] and then he would have earned €40m a year after tax."

On top of the huge salary, Ribeiro also claims that Al-Khelaifi offered Neymar a private jet to travel to Brazil games.
