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.
