Inquest into Neymar's move from Santos to Barcelona dropped


Judge Jose de la Mata has called a close to the investigation into the financial irregularities surrounding the transfer, much to the relief of Neymar and his father.

However, The news will come as a big blow to DIS, who claimed they were entitled to 40 per cent of the transfer fee, but only received a smaller compensation. This after DIS claimed that Barca had concealed the exact figures of the transfer figure.

Barcelona will now be able to draw a line under the whole matter, having recently agreed to pay Spanish authorities a 5.5-million-euro fine.

The Neymar transfer saga is the second high-profile case involving a Barca player in the recent times, with Lionel Messi and his father recently handed a 21-month suspended prison sentence for tax evasion.
