Neymar is considered to be as one of the greatest of Brazil’s football history. The 28-year-old is the third-highest goalscorer for the national side behind Pele and Ronaldo.

The Brazilian ace has achieved a lot performing remarkably in European leagues as well as for his National side. With that being said, it is a gain for PUMA to close a deal with the Brazilian who would be the face of the brand.
