PSG star earns DOUBLE his best-paid teammate
Neymar reportedly earns double the wage of the next best-paid PSG player.
The Brazilian completed a world-record move to the Ligue 1 giants in the summer, worth around £200million.
Neymar has enjoyed an excellent debut season in the French capital, scoring 18 league goals already.
L'Equipe have revealed the salaries of Ligue 1 players, with the top 10 unsurprisingly dominated by the leaders.
It is reported Neymar earns £2.7m a month, around £650,000-a-week with PSG - a long way ahead of his teammates.
Fellow forwards Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe are next on the list.
Uruguayan Cavani is believed to pocket around £340,000-a-week, just ahead of Mbappe (£320,000-a-week)
The French youngster remains on loan with PSG but will complete a permanent move this summer.
PSG skipper Thiago Silva is the fourth-highest earner at around £260,000-a-week ahead of Angel Di Maria and Marquinhos (both £247,000-a-week)
They are followed by Thiago Motta (£194,000-a-week) and Javier Pastore (£170,000-a-week) with Radamel Falcao the only non-PSG player in the top 10.
Dani Alves is next on the list, earning close to £155,000-a-week followed by Julian Draxler and Marco Verratti (both £133,000-a-week).
