MOST COMMENTED

FIFA has reportedly refused to hand over documents concerning Neymar’s move to Barcelona last summer to Pablo Ruiz, the Spanish judge who is investigating whether there is fraud in the deal. Last month Ruiz asked FIFA, Barcelona and the company Neymar & Neymar to hand over the documents they received regarding the transfer amid reports that different versions of the contracts exist.

Barcelona published details of the various elements of the deal on its official Web site, admitting that it paid out a total of 86.2 million euros, including a 17.1 million transfer fee to Santos and a 40 million euro ‘penalty payment’ to N&N, in addition to collaboration agreement with Santos worth 7.9 million euros, and two friendlies with the Brazilian club work 8.5 million euros related to marketing, scouting and development work in Sao Paulo.

However, according to Spanish news agency EFE, FIFA declined to provide documents to the Spanish investigation on the grounds that the Geneva-based ruling body only discloses private and sensitive information if requested to do so by a Swiss court.
