Barca: LFP see no Neymar irregularities

According to a statement released by Barcelona, the LFP have cleared the club of any irregularities regarding the Neymar transfer.

The signing of the Brazilian youngster last summer has been a controversial subject in the Catalan capital.

Former President Sandro Rosell had to step down earlier in the year after a club member sued for alleged misappropriation of funds.

But the Blaugrana have confirmed that the Liga Nacional de Futbol Professional’s Economic Control Committee are ‘satisfied’ there was no wrongdoing.

“FC Barcelona wish to express their satisfaction at the resolution of the Economic Control Committee of the Liga Nacional de Futbol Professional (LFP) that there is no existence of any irregular conduct committed by FC Barcelona in the signing of Neymar Jr.

“The Committee met last Wednesday, April 23 and its decision was published last Friday.

“According to the committee: “in view of the appeal made to the LFP by FC Barcelona (…), there is no evidence of any irregular conduct committed by the club which would have infringed the rules and regulations of the LFP. As a result of this, no further action in this matter will be taken”

“The Economic Control Committee of the Liga Nacional de Futbol Professional (LFP) ordered FC Barcelona to provide a series of documents in February and having analysed them in full has reached the decision that there were no irregularities whatsoever by the Club in the signing of Neymar Jr.

“In a spirit of transparency, FC Barcelona would like to place on record its complete willingness to continue to provide the committee with any further information related to the signing.”

The case is also being investigated by the Spanish High Court.
