Documents written on Real Madrid headed notepaper have been published that appear to lay out the Madrid proposal for the Brazil forward.

Madrid reportedly offered €60m to the company owned by Neymar’s father, to be paid in four instalments of €15m, while Madrid would also pay €25m of the €40m that would be due to Barcelona if Neymar joined a club other than the Catalans. Neymar’s father wanted Madrid to pay the full amount.

Santos would have received €10m, the same amount as the investment group that owned a portion of Neymar’s economic rights, for a total outlay of €105m.

Neymar was offered €10m per season for a six-year contract, or €12m for an eight-year deal, with bonuses to follow depending on the trophies won by Madrid during Neymar’s tenure.
