the case

In the action, Neymar, Rossel and other leaders were accused of corruption. The case originated from a complaint filed by the Brazilian company DIS, the fund that held Neymar’s economic rights at the time of the transfer, in 2013. DIS claimed that the contract was defrauded, so that the company would receive less for the transfer.

Officially, Barcelona reported that the contract value of Neymar’s transfer was €57.1 million (about R$310 million). After the DIS complaint, however, the Spanish Justice began to investigate the case and suspect that the real value of the contract was €83.3 million (more than R$450 million) and that the amount had been diluted in parallel contracts. , to mask the real value of the transaction. The defense of the accused has always denied it.
