NEYMAR’S private jet has been forced into an emergency landing after leaving Barbados.
It was heading back to the Paris Saint-Germain forward’s homeland from Barbados earlier today.
Several reports claim that the aircraft, owned and used by the world’s most-expensive footballer, landed safely in the north east of Brazil following the scare.
It remains unclear whether Neymar was onboard the flight when the worrying incident occurred.
However, he had earlier shared a snap of himself and his sister Rafaella posing on a runway next to a plane.
And then he uploaded a photo from inside an aircraft overlooking Miami as they headed back from holiday in the USA.
Neymar, Rafaella and the PSG player’s girlfriend Bruna Biancardi had been spotted enjoying the sunshine earlier this week on the beach in Miami.
That was after the former Barcelona star had played poker and partied with the Golden State Warriors in Sin City after their NBA championship success.
Neymar has previously splashed out £10.8m to buy the Embraer Legacy 450 aircraft – although it is unknown whether this is the one involved in this incident.
The PSG man, who also owns his own helicopter, is able to carry up to eight other passengers with him on it.
Like the player himself, this speedy plane can cover up to 531 miles an hour.
It can also muster 2,900 nautical miles in one go on a single tank.
The jet’s neatest feature is its enhanced flight vision system, which boasts an infrared camera.
