According to reports, Paris Saint Germain (PSG) superstar Neymar Jr. has responded to Real Madridâs offer for him â and has apparently demanded that he be given a contract worth an annual salary ofÂ â¬38million â a club record â provided they want him to join them this summer.
It is Josep Pedererol, a reporter ofÂ El Chiriguito TV, who reports that both PSG and Real Madrid are now awaiting a final decision from each other, after Neymar himself demanded an annual salary of â¬38million â nearly â¬7million more than the existing record.
Take a look atÂ El Chiriguito TVâs tweet right here:
Real Madrid new signing Eden Hazard is currently the highest-earning member of the club, as the Belgian pockets an annual salary of â¬31.25million according toÂ Capology.
Below Hazard comes unsettled star Gareth Bale (â¬27.94million), another new signing Luka Jovic (â¬20.83)million and Marcelo, Sergio Ramos and Toni Kroos who earnÂ â¬20million each.
Neymar currently earns a little overÂ â¬705,000 per week at the Parc des Princes, which in turn equates toÂ â¬36.68million a year.
His new wage demands are hence, only marginally high when compared to what he earns at the moment, but when it comes to playing for Real Madrid, it becomes quite a big deal.
