Emmanuel Macron congratulated the president of Paris Saint-Germain, Nasser Al Khelaïfi, on Thursday for the likely arrival of Brazilian Neymar at the Parisian football club, considering that this was good news for the attractiveness from France. “Congratulations, I understood that there was good news,” said the head of state to the president of the PSG during a trip on a regional leisure base in Yvelines.
Asked if this was good news for France, Emmanuel Macron replied: “It is attractiveness. Yes, that’s good news. ” The Qatari Nasser Al Khelaïfi, for his part, refused to comment, merely thanking the head of state with a smile. According to the agent of the player, the PSG paid to the Barcelona Barcelona the clause of release of 222 million euros to attach Neymar for five years.
The signing of his contract, which would provide an annual salary of 30 million euros net, is expected Thursday. Earlier in the morning, Gérald Darmanin, Minister of Public Affairs and Accounts, welcomed the likely arrival of Neymar in view of the high taxes that the Brazilian star may have to pay in France. “If indeed, Neymar comes to a French club, then the Minister of Public Accounts rejoices in the taxes he will be able to pay in France,” he said on France Inter.
“It is better for this football player to pay his taxes in France rather than pay them elsewhere,” added Gerald Darmanin, assuring that the tax administration would then ensure that “the interests of the country, and in particular its interests Will be well observed “.
