FC Barcelona's Neymar

The leaked documents confirm the 24-year-old has a €190 million buy-out clause at Camp Nou and could stand to earn a €1.7m bonus should his side win the treble this season.

Brazil international Neymar is the latest player to have details of his Barcelona contract revealed, after Football Leaks published his current Camp Nou deal.

The forward moved to the Catalan giants from Santos, signing the five-year deal in early June 2013, with his father named as his representative.

The contract states Neymar’s salary as €5 million a season, although there are numerous bonuses to be added, which ensure he will earn at least €49.5m over the duration of the deal.

The leaked documents also reveal the Brazil international also received an €8.5m signing on bonus and the contract confirms he has a buy-out clause of €190m.

Neymar, who finished third in the 2015 Ballon d’Or, also has a clause stipulating he shall receive €425,000 if he wins the award during his time at Barcelona.

There are various other clauses throughout the contract, with Neymar set to earn €637,500 each time Barcelona win La Liga, €850,000 for the Champions League and €850,000 for winning the Copa del Rey.

Barcelona remain on course to win three trophies this season and should they manage it Neymar will collect a cool €1.7m bonus and €1,062,500 if they win the Champions League and Copa del Rey.
