Neymar reps deny reports of new tax investigation

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is not the subject of a new tax investigation in Spain, according to his agency NR Sports.

Reports suggested that tax authorities were looking into the bonus payment he received after extending his Barcelona contract, as well as his world-record €222million transfer to PSG in 2017.

NR Sports responded to the report and insisted the authorities have only requested documents and information relating to the already opened case, with a hearing scheduled for March 21.

“NR Sports, the company responsible for the exclusive management of Neymar Jr’s career and image rights, hereby states that, on the contrary to the material published by the Spanish newspaper ‘El Mundo’ and reproduced in various means of communications, no investigative procedure was opened by the Spanish Treasury against Neymar Jr,” a statement read.
