Luring Neymar from Barcelona in a world-record transfer this summer was seen not just as a victory for Paris Saint-Germain, but also for the French club’s Qatari owners, Qatar Sports Investments (QSi).
The transfer has already begun to pay off on the pitch, with Neymar starring for the Ligue 1 leaders, as well as off it as the Brazilian’s PSG shirt is one of the most popular going around. And now QSi have begun exploiting another opportunity to cash in on the transfer, following news that the official club store in Qatar will sell Neymar shirts in Arabic.

An Arabic Neymar shirt is yet another sign of what a coup the Brazilian’s €222million transfer has been for PSG and its owners. There’s no doubt this exclusive shirt will be one of the hottest-selling in Qatar.
Neymar has made an electric start to life in PSG colours, tallying 8 goals and 2 assists in 8 appearances for the Parisian club while linking up well with fellow attackers Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe to form a lethal triumvirate.
PSG lead the league by three points ahead of defending champions Monaco, with a trip to relegation battlers Dijon coming up this Saturday.
