A further €30 million went to the Neymar family's N & N management company as part of the player's transfer.
Barcelona paid that 10 million to N&N, the company owned by the striker's father, before subsequently shelling out a further 30 million in commission after the deal was completed last year.
"I want Neymar to be at peace so that he can compete in the World Cup free from speculation. That is why we are clearing this whole thing up."
