Neymar has dismissed suggestions he is paid to applaud fans as “fake news”.
Reports emerged earlier this week that the Brazilian superstar receives a huge bonus for applauding PSG supporters at the end of each match.
The additional income is referred to as a “behaviour clause”, which Neymar is said to receive so long as he stays in the good books.
A France 2 documentary recently revealed that Neymar receives €375,000 per month for clapping PSG’s fans.
Skipper and countryman Thiago Silva is said to receive around €33,000-a-month, although PSG have since responded to the claims.
While they confirmed a behaviour clause does exist – it is for more than just clapping supporters.
AS reports the bonus is based on punctuality, respecting reporters and generally abiding by club and French league rules.
Neymar has also taken to Instagram to respond to the initial clapping story, branding the reports “fake news”.
Meanwhile, it was reported this week that Neymar actually cost PSG around €250m when he arrived from Barcelona at the start of last season.
PSG met his €222m release clause to complete his world-record signing but Der Spiegel reports it was more than that in their latest leak.
The French champions are also said to have paid commission to agent Pini Zahavi and other representatives, while former club Santos also received money in the deal.
Neymar will look to continue PSG’s 100 percent start to the season when they take on Monaco on Sunday.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have won all 12 matches in Ligue 1 to date and will fancy their chances against a Monaco side struggling under new boss Thierry Henry.
