Barcelona president Rosell denies Neymar cost €95M

Barcelona president Sandro Rosell has rejected claims Neymar's transfer from Santos cost €95 million. Reports in El Mundo state Barca paid €95 million for Neymar, rather than the €57 million Barca claim.

Rosell declared: "I want to state again that the transfer cost 57 million and that's it. With all respect to the judge, I'm asking him to accept the legal action and call me to declare immediately so I can tell him what I know. There is nothing to cover up, it was all perfectly above board and completely legal."

The President made it clear that the Club was subject to confidentiality clauses which meant he couldn't reveal all the economic details of the operation: "any confidentiality clauses involving this Club, are there because the other part demand it, I respect the contracts we sign and that's why I would love the judge to call me to declare so I can explain the contractual questions. Barça is 1000% transparent with what it explains".
