FC Barcelona to Take Legal Action Against Media
Spanish club, FC Barcelona are set to take legal action against the media, as they deny that a club executive earned commission on the sale of Neymar.
Barcelona denies about the Neymar sale issue.
According to SER Catalunya, Barcelona’s club executive, Andre Cury took €6.6 million from Neymar’s world record €222m move to Paris Saint-Germain last summer. The report also claimed he was due a three per cent cut of any future sale.
However, FC Barcelona has denied it and claimed it as a fake report. They have also threatened the media for spreading such news. Also, they are set to file a case for “fake news which goes against the club’s image and legitimate interests.” The La Liga champions released a statement, which says,
“Barcelona deny having paid any commission to Andre Cury in regards to the exit of Neymar. Cury has a non-exclusive contractual relationship with the club, through his company, to do scouting work.
In recent times, he has collaborated with the signings of players such as Paulinho, Yerry Mina, Philippe Coutinho and Arthur. Barcelona reserve the right to take the necessary legal action against those that report false news about the club.”
The allegations have hurt FC Barcelona’s image, and they will take any step they need to give a warning to the media.
Neymar’s transfer involved €222 million fees long with €306 million which will add up to his wages over the five-year tenure at PSG. The Ligue 1 club didn’t have to pay any taxes over the transfer. As per new rules, while spending the release clause, VAT and IRPF will already be included in the total sum.
In France, the maximum tax for any income over 500,001 euros is 45 per cent. And Neymar still being single, he is having an extra charge of 4 per cent.
