The jersey of newly-signed Neymar wore on his debut for Paris Saint-Germain has been sold for almost €250,000 (around R370,000,000) at a charity auction.

The 26-year-old made his debut for the Parisians last August following his world-record £198m move from Barcelona and marked the occasion with a goal as they had an easy 3-0 win against Guingamp.

His PSG strike-partner Kylian Mbappe also splashed out half-a-million euros on a statue of King Kong after outbidding him for it at the same event.

The 20-year-old Frenchman eventually saw off competition from Neymar to claim the prize after lodging a huge bid of €550,000.

According to L'Equipe a total of €1.645m was raised for the PSG Foundation at the gala dinner at the Parc des Princes making over €1m more than last year.

Mbappe posed for pictures with his new showpiece and Neymar's shirt meanwhile was auctioned off for €240,000 after winning the bidding war.

The same price was paid for the Ligue 1 Player of the Year award the Brazilian won last Sunday, which was signed by the man himself.

Meanwhile, earlier reported that the Brazil talisman is frustrated with the growing rumours linking his future to Real Madrid and Manchester United.
