Barcelona chief Andre Cury denies massive Neymar commission

Barcelona chief Andre Cury has denied reports he secured a massive commission last year from Neymar's sale to PSG.

It was claimed Cury was paid a staggering €6.6m after Neymar was sold by Barca for a world record €222m courtesy of his work in bringing the Brazilian to Spain from Santos.

However, Sport says Cury has denied the reports and insists he has not received any bonus from the transfer.

Cury played a key role in convincing Neymar to sign for Barcelona, after long and complicated negotiations which began in 2011 and materialised with the arrival of the then Santos forward in May, 2013.

It had been claimed as part of the negotiations, Cury had been handed 3 per cent of any sell on fee.
