Neymar and Nike

ArabAd - - COVER STORY -

Soccer star Neymar da Silva San­tos Júnior — bet­ter known as Neymar Jr. or Neymar — is the first soccer player ever to cre­ate a line of shoes with Nike‘s Jor­dan brand. Neymar had been a Nike ath­lete prior to align­ing with Jor­dan. He signed an 11-year deal with the brand in 2011 for an es­ti­mated 9.5 mil­lion euros — about $10.2 mil­lion — per year. In De­cem­ber 2017, Nike de­buted a new pair of Neymar’s sig­na­ture cleats — the Nike Mer­cu­rial Va­por XI Neymar FG. To top it all off, Neymar signed the most colos­sal sports con­tract of 2017 when he agreed to a world-record trans­fer with French soccer club Paris Saint-germain worth ap­prox­i­mately $262 mil­lion. His net worth sits at $140 mil­lion.
