He is being called to come and give evidence by Spain’s national court on February 2 for alleged fraud surrounding his transfer to Barcelona in 2013.

Both player’s parents, who is current Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu, and former club president Sandro Rossell and two directors from Neymar’s former club Santos have also been asked to come and give evidence.

They said they were entitled to 40 per cent of any transfer fee.
The deal was originally valued at 57.1 million euros ($62.1 million) by the Catalan club, but the Spanish judicial authorities have estimated the amount to be at least €83.3 million.

With this new case coming up Neymar’s fiscal problems haven’t affected his form on the field as he finished third in FIFA’s Ballon d’Or for the best player in the world on Monday after helping Barca to win five trophies in 2015
However, it has cast some doubt over his future at the club with his father Neymar Sr saying he would seek tax assurances before signing an extension to his Barcelona deal, which expires in 2018.
