Neymar Jr buys luxury sea-view property in Cyprus
It is widely known that FC Barcelona has been negotiating a transfer with PSG and Brazilian superstar, Neymar Jr, for weeks, and while Neymar Jnr has publicly voiced his desire to join the Catalan club, the difference over the financial aspect of the transfer seems to have stalled the deal in recent days.
However, with the recent news of the high-profile footballer purchasing a super-luxury property in Limassol, the coastline city of Cyprus, it appears that the deal is firmly back on the table. Pini Zahavi, Neymar’s Israeli agent, was recently spotted in Limassol, negotiating a multimillion-euro deal for a luxury property at ‘The Icon’, one of Limassol’s residential super-luxury skyscraper which is currently under construction.
‘The Icon’, Limassol’s emblematic apartment building set for delivery in December 2020, is said to have been introduced to the player’s father in a recent trip to Tel Aviv, where Mr Yiannis Misirlis, the owner of developer Imperio who designed and currently builds The Icon, was also present. Most recently, Mr Misirlis was seen with superagent Zahavi in Limassol, at The Icon’s Sales Office. Neymar Jr is well-known for his appetite in real-estate investment, although mostly in his home country of Brazil.
Last week, Neymar Jr failed to show up at PSG training, causing the club’s fury, while his father and manager said that Neymar Jr is set to attend training in mid-July upon his return from Brazil.
Mr Misirlis, from developer Imperio, could not be reached for comment about the purchase.
