Although repeatedly announced officially that the amount of Neymar’s transfer was 57,5 million euros, of wich 17,5 millions to Santos and 40 millions on behalf of an impresario company, the Catalan club is investigated for these amounts.

From the Catalan club accounts missing the 57.5 million euro, the contract with Santos and proof of payment has been made public, but it never happened the same with the 40 million that Barcelona president claims that the company paid to the impresario company.
