Neymar | King of Bling

The jury has been out for a while on Neymar.  Pele has called him “an excellent player”, other professional such as Marseille midfielder Joey Barton have been far less complimentary, tweeting “Neymar is the Justin Bieber of football. Brilliant on the old You Tube, but cats piss in reality…”

Whatever peoples opinion of him are, one cannot deny the kid from Mogi das Cruzes, Sao Paulo enjoys the highlife. The owner of a yacht, mansions, glamourous apartments and sports cars in his native Brazil, Neymar would give Flyd “Money” Mayweather a run for his money as the King of Bling.

The chosen one of Brazilian football, the mercurial forward  he will bring his unique brand of bling to Europe when he kicks off the new season with Barcelona, playing alongside Messi, Xavi and Iniesta. It’s a positive move to get away from Brazil ahead of the world as his life at home was starting to resemble an episode of Robin Leach’s “Lifestyles of the rich and famous.”

We take a closer look at the extraordinary riches that the 21-year old has attained in his short and illustrious career.
