Neymar’s value double that of Bale say Catalan press
Mundo Deportivo have claimed that Barcelona’s Brazilian superstar Neymar, is worth double the amount of Real Madrid’s recent world record signing Gareth Bale.
The sports newspaper which is published in Barcelona, also stoked the El Clásico fires by suggesting that Real Madrid have also lost two of their best players this summer, in the shape of Gonzalo Higuain and Mesut Özil.
The story suggested that Neymar’s experience in terms of titles won gives him the edge over Gareth Bale, who won nothing during his time at Southampton and Spurs, whereas the Brazilian has won several titles in Brazil and at international level.
They also pointed out that Neymar is more productive in attack in terms of his goals and assists, at both club and international level.
The comparison even stretched to branding and social media, with the newspaper claiming that Neymar is the bigger brand, and making the point that he has more followers on Twitter!
