The forward becomes the world’s most expensive player by quite some distance after the controversial, convoluted deal was eventually confirmed on Thursday and is set to earn over £40m per year in salary.
With debate surrounding the enormous numbers involved set to continue, here are the best Neymar transfer jokes so far:
£198m for this Neymar lad. World's gone mad. He's got the skills but not the grit of a proper English player like Mark Albrighton

TBF to Neymar, he's done well for a lad that once died during a World Cup and was publicly mourned by his team-mates pic.twitter.com/aFflazbaHN

If Neymar dropped a £2 coin, it literally wouldn't be worth his time picking it up, because in France they use Euros, not Pounds.

But I think PSG wanted someone to play left wing, not on the right…

Neymar may be costing £450million but could you throw a brick at him and he'd head the fucker back?
Didn't think so. #lufc

For the price of Neymar, PSG could've bought Spotify Premium for the entire of Romania.

Big fan of the Neymar transfer. These are €220m that won't go towards jihad.

£198m for Neymar
To put that into context, that's a week's stay for a family of five at Center Parcs with 3 kids who want to do everything

£200m for a footballer. I think that's roughly what the Millenium Stadium cost and I'm pretty sure Neymar doesn't have a retractable roof.
— Stuart Murphy (@stuart_murphy) August 3, 2017
For £198M yeah, Neymar better win PSG the bloody World Cup.
— Toboré (@toboreeee) August 3, 2017
If Neymar is worth £198m just imagine how much Jordan Cook is worth.
Yep, probably still a free transfer.

In the end, Messi will kiss our 6th Champions League trophy, while Neymar will kiss his sister on top of the Eiffel Tower. Levels.

If Football Manager has taught me anything, Neymar will break his ankle on the first day of the season and be ruled out for 4-5 months.
