How much Neymar's PSG no-show will cost Brazilian star as he pushes for transfer


Neymar’s decision to fail to report for the start of Paris Saint-Germain’s pre-season is set to cost him €375,000 (£340,000).

The Brazilian has been heavily linked with a summer return to Barcelona and PSG confirmed he had not returned to France when he was supposed to last week.

According to Marca , his actions will see him fail to pick up the huge clause in his contract rewarding him financially for good behavour.

The clause for good behaviour made headlines when it was revealed by Football Leaks last year, with PSG responding to explain what it entailed.

“It is for exemplary behaviour towards sponsors, opponents, referees and officials and for punctuality and effort in training,” the club said.

“Even respect towards the media is one of the parts of this behavioural bonus.”

But Neymar’s inability to report back to the French capital when he was supposed to is set to cost him.

The money will go to the PSG charity, with the clause utilised in contracts across France due to clubs not being allowed to fine players part of their fixed wages.

Neymar’s father and agent denied his son went AWOL as he slammed PSG for their statement claiming he had not shown up when he was expected to.

“The reason [for his absence] is known and was scheduled one year ago, with the annual schedule of his institute, and we couldn’t change it,” Neymar Snr told Fox Sports Brazil .
