Neymar is currently the most expensive footballer in the world. In terms of income, he is behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. And whether that Neymar is getting help from the government welfare fund! That’s only 120 dollars!
Coronavirus is currently disrupting public life around the world. So the Brazilian government decided to do something to help the poor people. They announced $120 for low-income people, such as cleaners and cooks. Someone entered Neymar’s name there. Such news has been published by the international news agency AFP.
Neymar’s name, date of birth and ID number were applied for the government grant, they wrote in the news. And it is also approved by the government. When the matter came to light later, the authorities canceled it. They have written that they are ‘under evaluation’ as the required instructions have not been fulfilled.
“Of course, Neymar never did it for his own benefit,” said a UOL official. However, we still do not know who did it.
Neymar signed for French club PSG from Barcelona in 2016 for 222 million euros. He earns about $98 million a year there.
Note that Brazil is the second most affected country in the world due to coronavirus. After the United States, most people in the country have been infected with the virus. So far 618,554 people have been infected. The death toll is 34,062.
