Barcelona is still defending its stance on Neymar’s transfer issue. The esteemed Spanish soccer club has recently released its statement again in defense of their actions regarding transfer of the Brazilian star.
In a recent press conference, the club was asked by the Spanish media about allegations regarding unpaid tax issues pertinent to signing of the young Brazilian player, who shifted from Santos to Nou Camp last June.
Barca’s statement read- “Regarding reports presented in today’s media conference about the transfer procedure taken to bring in Neymar Santos Jr. to Club, Barcelona would proceed to state: i) Club’s deals regarding this very operation & in the light of every data available, was always in accordance to pertinent legal legislation. ii) Represented by the lawyers, Barcelona would appear at Central Jutjat d’Instruccio # 5 within a few days to defend the Club’s interests & rights. Iii) We express complete willingness to cooperate with Justice authorities regarding the matter, as the Club has done from the very first ever moment this issue came up & in all other areas where our presence might be required.”
The reputed Spanish football club which hosts soccer stalwarts like Messi, have got themselves entangled in disputes concerning finances behind the Brazilian star’s move to Nou Camp. In January 2014, Rosell (Sandro) offered resignation from his post of Barca President when Pablo Ruz, the national court justice of Span, accepted the lawsuit which alleged the club chief of misappropriate fund transfers- from the deal of the Brazilian international. The 49-year-old boss of one of the most eminent soccer clubs of the world did not accept the allegation and denounced it as “unfair & reckless.”
Jordi Cases, Barcelona club member, alleged saying that the fee paid was over 57 m Euros.

Brazilian national team manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has started a war of words with Chelsea manager José Mourinho by saying that he feels Neymar is one of the best in the world. Mourinho started his mind games with Barcelona even at this stage itself. Neymar was recently found to have simulated in the 1-0 win over Celtic to get one of the opposition players sent off. Mourinho criticised this action of the Brazilian by saying that it was unwarranted. Scolari, though, is surprised that Mourinho has come out with this statement when it was totally unnecessary.
The former Chelsea manager thinks that it is because the Portuguese is beginning to start the mind games with the knowledge that Barcelona could come up against his team in the latter stages of the Champions league. At that time, he would have an advantage over Gerardo Martino. Neymar has been a successful signing from Barcelona so far. Even though he cost the club in excess of £ 50 million, he has been able to play at a consistently high level since the start of the season.
“Maybe he [Mourinho] knows that Neymar is now at the same level as Cristiano and Messi and can really hurt his team. The players know they will have to win the World Cup. If we are not good enough we will lose but if we work hard, as we have been doing in the last months, I can see us challenging for the title,” said Scolari, who was in charge of Chelsea only for a few months before being sacked due to poor results.
His presence has also helped Barcelona overcome the lack of Lionel Messi for much of the season. Neymar already wrote his name by scoring in his El Clasico debut. The Brazilian has five goals and nine assists this season.
