El Mundo claim Barcelona might have to pay €63 million in taxes because of Neymar’s transfer
Spanish newspaper El Mundo claim that the Spanish Ministry of Finance are looking into the Neymar deal and may force Barcelona to pay €63 million in taxes, this is according to reports by Lance.
El Mundo was the paper that leaked the initial documents, which highlighted the secrecy around Neymar’s transfer to the Catalan club last summer.
And now the Tax Agency may look into the amount paid into the company of the player's parents as part of his salary. The company in question is N & N and that could force Barcelona into paying more money in taxes.
Taxes in Catalan are 56% and the newspaper suggests Barca tried to avoid paying that by insisting the €50 million paid to Neymar’s parents company wasn’t for the Brazilian, which also made sure Argentine maestro Lionel Messi was still the best paid player at the club.
It seems though that Barcelona have been trumpeted and could now be forced to pay a large amount to Spanish Ministry of Finance.
It seems the nightmare for Barcelona and recently departed president Sandro Rosell goes on.
