A Barcelona employee was paid €6m when Neymar signed with PSG
The transfer that keeps on giving a year later
If the Neymar signing had more layers and secrets than any of us could have ever imagined, his exit to Paris Saint Germain is quickly becoming just as complex and questionable. Cadena SER revealed that André Cury, a man that is directly employed Barcelona, was paid €6m when Neymar left the club for France.
Cury signed a contract with Sandro Rosell when he still was Barcelona's president, that guaranteed him 3% of Neymar's transfer fee if he was sold. Rosell is currently in jail in Spain for multiple accusations of impropriety, has once again managed to do harm to the club, years after resigning.
