FC Barcelona have been reported to be going through a tough financial time as results of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
These effects have seen many teams having to cut down costs and even terminate player contracts or sell their players.
Spain giants Barcelona also have been trying to make up funds reportedly by selling some of their players to keep up with financial demands.
According to El Mundo, Barca have stumbled upon an error that happened in 2015 in a tax inspection that they ran. They discovered that an amount of €10 million was erroneously paid to Neymar as a tax miscalculation. The team now wants Neymar to pay back that amount.
This is not the first time that the club has looked to Neymar for funds as they recently got the Brazilian to pay a sum of about €5 million after he lost a court battle for alleged outstanding bonuses.
Spain’s Tax Authorities have reportedly informed the Blaugrana that unless the team reaches an agreement with Neymar, the error from their side will be reflected as a donation.
This only fuels the rumours that the team is going through a difficult time. To search tax records from 5 years back and then attack a player does not seem to be very presidential by the team. How this will play out we do not know but it is hard to see such things in football.
