The nomination of Neymar for the Ballon d'Or 2015 will force FC Barcelona to pay two million euros to Santos. The transfer agreement signed in 2013 stipulates it.

In the third season with Barcelona shirt and only being 23 years old, Neymar has already entered on the list of candidates for the Ballon d'Or and he might compete for the second place with Cristiano Ronaldo, as Messi is the great candidate to be first.

With the payment of these 2 million, the signing of Neymar increases up to 88 million euros, although the conflict generated by the controversial transfer is still to be solved.
