The deal is done. And what a deal it is.
Brazilian soccer star Neymar has left Barcelona to join Paris Saint-Germain in a record-setting transfer.
And now thanks to online sports retailer Fanatics, you can get the newest Neymar PSG jerseys and other gear as the team readies for the 2017-18 Ligue 1 season, which began on August 5.
The jersey made by Nike is made of 100 percent polyester and features Dri-FIT technology to wick away moisture quickly to keep you cool and dry. Heat-sealed graphics included Neymar Jr. and his No. 10 on the back with Fly Emirates on the front. And it also has the Paris-Saint Germain embroidered team crest sewn on the left chest.
Other features include a tagless collar for extra comfort, ventilated mesh panel inserts for added breathability, and an embroidered Nike logo on the right chest. It’s machine washable, but it’s advised to line dry.
The striker had a 222 million Euros ($330 million) release clause, which had to be paid in full. PSG obliged so it could land one of the biggest stars in the game. Last season for Barcelona in La Liga, Neymar, 25, scored 13 goals and had 11 assists in 30 appearances. He also added 4 goals and 8 assists in 9 Champions League matches.
Just last year, Manchester United paid a then-record 105 million Euros (then $156 million) for France midfielder Paul Pogba last year. Neymar and Paris SG’s deal obviously shattered that amount.
Neymar’s Paris Saint-Germain squad placed second in Ligue 1 in 2016-17, but had won four consecutive titles prior to that. PSG has already qualified for the 2017-18 UEFA Champions League, which is already underway.
