Barcelona paid too little for Neymar?

Postby jones7781 » Wed Jul 10, 2013 9:45 pm

Barcelona has just paid 17 million to santos for Neymar according to the documents.The 21-year-old, who starred in Brazil's successful Confederations Cup campaign in June, joined the Catalans for €57m in one of the most high profile transfers of 2013 to date.The attacker, who has scored an impressive 24 goals in 39 Selecao appearances, will meet up with his new Barca team mates next week.

Is not it too less?

In South America the players are often owned by other people or companies who all
get their share of the transfer fee which is why Santos may have only received 17 million as their part.

besides that there is no way Barcelona (or any club) would pay that kind of fee up front. almost all deals these days are done in installments.

I don't think it's too much, but I doubt Neymar fits in a team with Messi.

How much really depends on his salary in the club to pay for value.

It was around the 55m mark with a fair whack going to 3rd parties.
Its also been rumoured for a couple of years that a 10m down payment was made to guarantee his arrival, although it would be against the rules hence no official sources.
Still unsure as to whether its a bargain or another famous Barca mistake in the market.
