The Brazilian’s $263m move to Paris Saint-Germain set a record and has people wondering what such a sum could buy.
Paris Saint-Germain’s record signing of Brazilian striker Neymar da Silva Santos Jr for 222 million euros ($263m) has stunned seasoned analysts and fans alike.

Many pondered what they could buy for the Brazilian’s price-tag, with ideas ranging from battalions of Challenger tanks and properties in London’s most expensive areas, to the number of chocolate bars or cups of coffee.
Others thought about how such a sum could be used to alleviate problems, such as the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis.
