Santos only received a meagre total of €9.35 million from the sale of Neymar to Barcelona in June.

According to documents received by Radio Globo, the €57m deal was broken up between Santos, Neymar and his representatives, and third party interests.

The Catalans secured the services of the Brazil international in a deal worth €57m, but Santos obtained only €9.35m of the fee.

A hefty €40m was paid in commission to other parties including Neymar's father, while the remaining €7,65m was split between two companies which owned part of his registration, Teisa Group and DIS.

The documents also show the two friendlies that were agreed between the two clubs, with most of the proceeds going to Santos.

Radio Globo claims they received the documents via a leak from the Santos board of directors.
