Barcelona have announced the transfer of Neymar has been cleared by authorities.

Barca have found themselves embroiled in controversy regarding the finances behind Neymar's move to the Nou Camp from Santos last summer.

A Barca statement read: "Barcelona wish to express their satisfaction at the resolution of the Economic Control Committee of the Liga Nacional de Futbol Profesional (LFP) that there is no existence of any irregular conduct committed by Barcelona in the signing of Neymar Jr.

"The Committee met last Wednesday, April 23rd and its decision was published last Friday.

"According to the committee: 'in view of the appeal made to the LFP by Barcelona...there is no evidence of any irregular conduct committed by the club which would have infringed the rules and regulations of the LFP. As a result of this, no further action in this matter will be taken'."

Barca added in the statement: "In a spirit of transparency, Barcelona would like to place on record its complete willingness to continue to provide the committee with any further information related to the signing."
