Neymar In More Trouble At Barca

FC Barcelona star Neymar has been the subject of several legal matters in recent times, and new evidence could land the Brazilian in deeper trouble.

The Brazilian and his representatives have reportedly been accused of cheating on the amount of his transfer fee for his move from Santos to Barcelona, which took place in 2013, as it is alleged to be higher than what was stated to the public.

Teisa, a Brazilian investment fund, opened a case to sieze documents of the transfer as they held 5% of Neymar's economic rights, which would've seen them earn a greater share of the transfer fee from his move to the Catalan club.

The 23-year-old's lawyers reportedly appealed a similar ruling four months ago, resulting in a postponement of the case, but a Sao Paulo judge, Gilson Ferreira, has now confirmed an investigation is under way.

"Despite what appears in the contracts, there is strong evidence that the real value involved in the transfer has in fact been hidden by those directly participating in the deal, with the aim of harming Teisa," the law official said in a statement.

Brazil's Revenue Service have reportedly frozen about €42 million in assets belonging to Neymar, and even siezed one of the forward's cars.

Neymar was also accused of tax evasion by Brazilian authorities when he was still with former side Santos.
