Spanish judge orders Barca to present Neymar contract for scrutiny

Beijing, Dec 20: A Spanish judge has ruled Barcelona must submit the contracts that brought Brazilian star Neymar to the club in May to ascertain if president Sandro Rosell has a case to answer for misappropriation of funds, according to reports.

According to China Daily, Barcelona has publicly stated the money from Neymar’s signing was distributed among four companies at a total cost of 57.1 million euros.

However, the club has claimed a confidentiality clause in the contract prevents it from saying how much each of the parties received of the overall fee, the report said.

That led to Barca member Jordi Cases launching a case against Rosell for misappropriating funds, the report added. (ANI)
