Barcelona say Neymar’s transfer cost them €100m

Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, has claimed that Neymar’s transfer from Santos cost them more than €100million.
The Brazilian forward signed for the Catalan club in 2013 for a then-reported fee of €57million.

Ever since, there have been controversy over the true cost of the deal, with Neymar and his father, Neymar Sr., being subject of lawsuits.




When asked about the overall cost, Bartomeu said: “I think we’re mixing up concepts. I’ll explain.

“The cost of signing the player was €57 million, which is what was paid: €17.1 million to Santos and €40 million to the player’s father. Moreover, he reached the final of the Ballon d’Or: an extra two million. Those €59.1 million and the €5.5 million from the agreement with the public prosecutor’s office and the State Attorney’s Office, that’s the cost of the deal.

“Another thing is the overall cost of the operation. And this is an amount which is over €100 million.”

Neymar is close to signing a new five-year deal to stay at the Nou Camp.
