    Neymar out of top ten as Forbes unveil highest paid celebrities in 2018

    Brazilian superstar Neymar didn’t make the top ten of Forbes Magazine’s list of highest paid entertainers in 2018.

    In August 2017, Neymar signed a five-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain worth a total cash outlay of more than $600 million. Of that, $250 million was paid to his former club Barcelona to release him from his contract there. The remaining $350 million will be paid in salary through his playing contract that lasts until June 2022.

    However, despite working off the pitch with global sponsors Nike, Red Bull, Gillette, McDonalds and Beats by Dre, He still didn’t make the top ten of the world’s premiere financial publication annual list of the highest paid entertainers in the world.

    The duo is closely followed by Kylie Jenner, who recently got honoured by Forbes as a self-made billionaire. She made $166.5m in the year under review.
