Neymar is in good hands or in hands that are worth $30 billion at least. Courted from all sides, the young Brazilian has decided to hand control of his career and image rights to Eike Batista, the richest man in Brazil. We don’t have the terms of the deal, but we’re pretty sure it involves quite a few zeros, especially since this new contract does not affect his current commitments with Nike, Panasonic and Red Bull.
Neymar declared that he was thrilled to have a world renowned Brazilian company on his side, and that he believed it would help boost his career. The footballer’s next challenge are the London Games, where he plans on making his mark by returning with Olympic gold. The one medal missing from Brazil’s long list of accomplishments.
Neymar also plans on being a massive fan himself, he recently said “I’m going to be seeing people like Bolt and James. I’m going to ask to have my photo taken with them and ask for their autographs.”
