Barcelona’s signing of Neymar in May 2013 is still under investigation; the club has since released some numbers so as to avoid looking like it was hiding anything. The phenom forward got a 10 million euro signing bonus to add to his base salary of 9 million euro—and that’s not to mention endorsements. The 22-year-old has become one of the faces of the 2014 World Cup, and deals have followed, with companies like Nike, VW, Panasonic, Castrol and Drakkar Noir, which put out Neymar cologne.
