It’s no secret that the richest athletes in the world live in extravagance off the field. Like football players Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, the fourth highest-paid sportsman in the world, has a penchant for the finer things in life and isn’t afraid to flaunt his lavish lifestyle.

According to Forbes, he earned US$70 million from football and US$25 million from endorsements and deals. Coincidentally, he also earned the same amount last year but was ranked sixth among the highest-paid athletes.

The year will be big for Neymar as he is gearing up for the World Cup in Qatar this fall. He was also recently the subject of the Netflix docuseries Neymar: The Perfect Chaos. His valuable endorsements, according to Forbes, are Puma and Red Bull.

With all that said, how does Neymar spend his earnings?
