How many goals has Neymar scored during his career? Al-Hilal star's incredible stats in full

There's no denying Neymar is one of the greatest attackers around in the game. It's that simple.

Sure, he might not quite have managed to scale the heights that some expected him to reach early in his career, as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's numbers remain out of his reach.

But then again, can anyone really compete with those two? After all, Messi and Ronaldo are very much in a league of their own!

And Neymar has still managed to score well over 400 goals over the course of his career, which is no mean feat.

But for what team has he been at his very best in front of goal?

How many goals does Neymar have in total for PSG, Barcelona, Santos, Al-Hilal, and Brazil?

It all started at Santos for the gifted attacker and that's where he found the net the most often to date, despite leaving his native country for a move to La Liga at a young age.

Neymar netted an impressive 136 goals in 225 appearances in all competitions for Santos.

That was enough to earn his big-money move to Barcelona and he did not waste any time to make an impact at the Camp Nou side either.

Playing alongside fellow superstars Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, Neymar more than enjoyed himself in Catalunya and got a cool 105 goals in 186 matches.

He became the world’s most-expensive player back in 2017 after PSG forked out £198 million to sign him from Barcelona. Although he has been unable to bring the club their much-craved Champions League success, which he did manage to lift in 2015 with Barcelona, the Samba ace scored 82 goals in 112 Ligue 1 matches since, winning the title five out of his six years at the French capital.

After spending six years at Parc des Princes, the Brazilian superstar has recently completed yet another big-money move to Riyadh-based side Al-Hilal as he looks set to torture Saudi Pro League defences for fun.

Now that we have established that Santos was his favourite hunting ground at a club level, that leaves the question as to what his favourite domestic competition is.

How many goals has Neymar scored in Brasileirao, LaLiga and Ligue 1?

Neymar is clearly loving life in France as he has already scored more goals in Ligue 1 than he ever got in LaLiga and the Brasileirao.

At this rate, it seems inevitable that he will surpass the 100-goal mark in the not too distant future, even if he still has some way to go before he reaches the top 10 of the Ligue 1 all-time top goal scorers list.

What's Neymar's Champions League record?

One of the main reasons PSG brought in Neymar was to help them clinch the Champions League trophy, but he has not managed to do that just yet.

Neymar has made his way into the top 15 most-prolific goal scorers in the competition, though, having scored 43 goals in 81 appearances to date.

What's Neymar's Brazil record like?

Neymar is well on his way to becoming Brazil's all-time leading goal scorer, with just Pele clear of him heading into the World Cup.

The PSG star finds himself on 77 goals from 124 games, having scored most of his goals in international friendlies, but also boasting a decent record at major tournaments with 11 goals at 23 World Cup and Copa America matches.

Unsurprisingly, that also puts him among the best-ever international goal scorers, a list that is being topped by Cristiano Ronaldo.
