The lawyer of Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar denies any suggestion there is a release clause in his contract.
Neymar, 25, became the world’s most expensive footballer when he swapped Barcelona for the Parc des Princes last summer when PSG activated his £198m buyout clause.
However, contrary to reports, his PSG contract doesn’t contain an equivalent due to the fact they are outlawed in France, as Neymar’s legal representative Marcos Motta stressed amid reported interest from Real Madrid.
“In Neymar’s contract, I can guarantee you that there’s no release clause,” Motta told Radio Globo.
“Neither are there any bonuses for meeting objectives or goals scored.”
How is Neymar getting on at PSG?
To say the Brazilian international is enjoying a productive season in Ligue 1 is an understatement.
Neymar has to date featured across 15 matches, missing six, during which he has registered 15 goals and created a further 11 for his teammates.
In the Parisian club’s recent outing, an 8-0 rout of Dijon at home, Neymar bagged four of those goals and subsequently became the second Ligue 1 player in history after compatriot Carlos Eduardo, then of Nice, to receive a perfect ’10’ rating by the esteemed publication L’Équipe.
