Barcelona superstar Neymar has never been scared of splashing the cash but with a £500,000-a-week contract at Paris Saint-Germain on the cards, the Brazilian took his spending to a whole other level on Complex magazine’s Sneaker Shopping series.

Neymar was invited onto the show to discuss his career, his love of fashion and most importantly his penchant for limited edition sneakers.

The Brazil international even has his own brand of trainer, the Air Jordan V ‘Neymar’, which was launched in collaboration with Nike and NBA legend Michael Jordan.

‘He was incredible when I met him,’ Neymar told Complex. ‘He was a really nice guy, really cool. 

‘I was taken aback by his hospitality. It was one of the happiest moments of my life. I was shaking when I met him.’

Neymar will continue his collaboration with Nike and Jordan in the near future and the 25-year-old revealed he already has ideas on a follow up to the Air Jordan Hypervenom II football boots that were released last year.

‘The plan is to keep on improving, not just the boots themselves, but its development so I can be more comfortable with a lighter boot,’ he said. 

‘We’ll carry on talking to improve its appearance.’

Neymar also revealed he and Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi have a personal rivalry when it comes to each other’s footwear on the pitch.

‘Not with trainers, but with boots – when they’re ugly we play around, have a joke,’ he said.

After finishing his interview, Neymar took the time to browse the world-famous Flight Club shoe shop in Los Angeles before racking up a whopping $18,623 (£14,242) bill – a new record for the Sneaker Shopping series.
