NEYMAR - Have your say on his world record deal. Is it good business or a joke?

Paris Saint Germain have sent their lawyers to Madrid and the La Liga offices to pay the £198m release clause to sign Neymar on a five-year contract with over £515,000 per week. 

It's the most ridiculous transfer ever, the most ludicrous and a deal that will have an effect on the transfer market like never before. With just under a month to go before the window closes we can expect big money moves that will follow his move to Paris as Barcelona look to replace the Brazilian attacker.

So why on earth would a player at one of the biggest clubs in the world make a decision to leave and move to a league that we have to admit is inferior? Now I mean no offence by that to the French League and the teams, supporters there but it's a fact. Every single season there are two or possibly three teams that will challenge for the title, everyone in football knows that, everyone accepts it and there is no argument. Why does Neymar want to play there?

First and foremost it's the money and you would be hard pushed to turn down that staggering amount of money per week. But as far as footballing reasons go it's very hard to understand.

There is a rumour doing the rounds that because he has his heart set on winning the Ballon D'or, he has realised that playing with Lionel Messi and in the same league as Cristiano Ronaldo that his work is cut out. The decision to leave Barcelona is because he wants to be the number one, the stand-out player who wants to become a legend in his own right believing that he can do that in France.

You and I both know that he more than likely will become a legend there but he joins a club that has failed to reach a final of the Champions League let alone win it. One player does not make a team and he will find that out over the next few seasons.

So what of the repercussions from his expect move today? Barcelona will be looking to spend big money to bring in a replacement for around £80-£100m and whoever they buy, the selling club will then look to invest in their own replacements and even more money will be spent in doing so. Chelsea fans will sit tight and hope that any thoughts of Barcelona looking to sign Eden Hazard are just pure speculation.

As for PSG? Well they will get their man and make at least £100m over the during of his five-year contract in merchandising alone. People are talking to FFP (Financial Fair Play) and the fact that it was implemented to prevent deals like this going through but all the Parisians have to do is demonstrate that they have made no more than a £30m loss over a three year period which will be easy.

There will be a snowball effect within football to Neymar's move to PSG and all sorts of money will be thrown about as people look to replace and strengthen their squads before the end of the month. £198m earning both Neymar and his representatives around £45m in addition to his weekly wages of £515,000 per week!

What do you think of the deal? Is it good business or a joke?
