The revelation over Neymar's Barcelona wages is expected to see teammates demanding answers from club directors.Marca says currently Lionel Messi earns 16 million net per season. The original idea to improve on that will not change under the new President Josep Maria Bartomeu, but the news of what Neymar is earning could have some repercussions for both Messi and the rest of the squad.
Andrés Iniesta, for example, was assured he would be the second biggest earner at Barca behind Messi. But he earns a net figure of 7 million plus two million more in bonuses, while Neymar is getting a gross total of around 21 million when all the extra payments are added together.
