SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT REPORTING FROM MANGARATIBA (RIO DE JANEIRO)

In October of 2016, soccer star Neymar and his father, Neymar da Silva Santos, bought a mansion in the Portobello complex in Mangaratiba, Rio de Janeiro, for R$ 24 million (US$ 7.6 million).

The mansion has an area of 10,200 m² - or the size of an official soccer field - and has six suites, a tennis court, an underground cellar and a gym. It also has a heliport that has been sanctioned by the National Civil Aviation Agency (Anac).

The PSG and Brazil forward has been seen going on walks with family and friends along the canal next to the mansion. They have also been seen sailing on board the Nadine, a yacht named after the soccer star's mother.

Back in 2016, weeks after purchasing the mansion, the father and son bought an additional lot of land in the same condominium, with an area totalling just over 3,000m².

The lot of land adds up to less than half the size of the mansion, but that doesn't mean it's small: there's enough room to build a hangar and another home on it.

Since the runway belongs to the condominium, residents flying in private jets can forego bureaucratic procedures. That means Neymar will be able to go to his house without setting foot in the airport.

He will also be able to keep his Cessna Citation jet safe from the rain and sunlight. The Cessna Citation can accommodate up to 10 people.

The crew that operates the jet will use the home on the second site for lodging.

The owner of the Portobello complex, Carlos Borges, told Folha that construction of the athlete's hangar will begin in March of this year.
