Neymar explains change and praises CR7: "Everyone called him crazy"

Now they are all gone from Europe, probably still the biggest, because above all the most popular three soccer stars in the world. While Lionel Messi meanwhile enchants the MLS in the Inter Miami jersey, Al Nassr forward Cristiano Ronaldo has started a landslide trend in the Saudi Pro League that has now also been followed by Neymar.

The 31-year-old Brazilian credits the 38-year-old Portuguese with that after his quite surprising move to Al-Hilal in an interview with the club media: “Cristiano Ronaldo was the pioneer of all this,” said Neymar. “Everyone called him crazy. But now this league is growing more and more.” The noble technician also wants to contribute to this, “helping her to grow”.

As of this writing, Neymar believes the growth is so advanced that he expects an exciting competition. “There have already been a lot of commitments that will change a lot here,” says the former Barça and PSG striker. “Competition is important to me, that’s why I came here.” So much for his statements.

Meanwhile, consistent media reports about sometimes insane contract details between Neymar, his club and, to a certain extent, Saudi Arabia, cause a lot of eye rubbing, while the transfer fee, which ranges between 80 and 100 million euros, almost takes a back seat.

Half a million euros per social media post?

The legal footer is to receive up to 200 million euros in basic salary in just two years of the contract, as well as a private jet available around the clock and a large property including staff. A prize of 80,000 euros beckons for each game won, and there should even be 500,000 euros for every post with which he advertises the country Saudi Arabia on his social media.

Neymar doesn’t refer to such things. “I’m happy to meet good players in these teams, Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Roberto Firmino,” smiles the 124-time international. “It will be wonderful.”
