Neymar's ball control against Bordeaux is straight up insulting

Even though money has been getting silly in football for a while now, Neymar's €222 million move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain this summer still shocked just about everyone.

The Brazilian has taken to Ligue 1 with serious ease despite all the pressure and scrutiny surrounding him and off the back of a 3-0 victory over Bayern Munich, he may have produced his best performance for the club yet this weekend

PSG romped to a 6-2 victory over Bordeaux on Saturday and Neymar chipped in with two goals and an assist for supposed arch-nemesis Edinson Cavani.

Much was made of the Parisian's summer spending, but the way Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Cavani have taken to playing together is a scary sight for the rest of Europe.

While Neymar's free-kick stole the headlines, or his exchange with Cavani before taking and scoring a penalty, there was another moment in the match that stood out.

With PSG already winning 6-1 but with around 20 minutes to play, the ball was switched to Neymar over on the left-flank.

Now, Neymar has been known to do this trick a few times during his career, but given the scoreline and the nonchalant way he does it, this has to be one of the most insulting yet.

Feast your eyes on the video below as Neymar brings the ball under his spell in outrageous fashion:

Neymar has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons for the past few weeks following a very public spat with Cavani as the two debated who should take a penalty against Lyon, which the Uruguayan subsequently missed.

The pair of attackers seemed to have buried the hatchet in light of their performances and celebrations over the past two games. PSG are now back to looking like the unstoppable force they should be.

Will boss Unai Emery be able to keep his superstar squad happy all season long? Only time will tell, but one thing for sure is that Neymar has guarantees from the club's owner that he will remain the number one man regardless of what happens.
