Neymar’s Reported €86m Transfer Fee Was A Lie, Barca Boss Says.

Barcelona’s Vice-President for economics Susana Monje, has argued with explanations that signing Neymar was never up to the hyped €86m officially circulated as his transfer fee.

According to the VP, Neymar’s value stands at €19.3m.

A report from Football Espana quotes Monje as explaining how the total amount was summed up; €17.3m paid to Santos for the rights to the forward and a further €2m for being a finalist to win the Ballon d’Or.

“Other payments regarding Neymar’s transfer are considered part of his salary.”

“It was an exceptional operation for a Ballon d’Or finalist with a great future. I also want to congratulate the player for choosing Barca, since we know he had offers from other clubs,” Monje added.

“I don’t agree with figures given at other times. I don’t know where [a reported fee of] €86m came from. It’s apples and oranges.”

The report adds that Monje also confirmed €1.5m has been put aside in the club’s accounts in case of any further tax issues, but stressed dealings with the treasury are ‘administrative’ and not ‘criminal.’
