Mourinho: Neymar worth the money

Jose Mourinho believes that Neymar is worth the astronomical fee Paris Saint-Germain are set to pay Barcelona for his services.

PSG are set to pay €222m to sign the Brazilian forward, making the £89m Manchester United paid for Paul Pogba seem less exorbitant in comparison.

"For £200m I don't think he is expensive," Mourinho said. "Neymar is one of the best players in the world, commercially he is very strong and for sure Paris Saint-Germain thought about it.

"So I think the problem is not Neymar, I think the problem is the consequences of Neymar.

"I think he is expensive in the fact that now you are going to have more players at £100m, you are going have more players at £80m and more players at £60m. I think that's the problem."
