Spanish tax authorities investigate Brazilian footballer Neymar

Neymar is being investigated in Spain

According to El Mundo, Spanish tax authorities are investigating Neymar's contract renewal with FC Barcelona and his subsequent transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.

According to the newspaper, Spanish authorities want to know if Neymar paid in Spain the taxes corresponding to his Barcelona contract renewal, which amounted to €64.4 million euros, and to his transfer to Paris Saint-German, which amounted to a record-breaking €222 million.

The authorities believe that, as someone with a tax resident status in Spain in 2017, Neymar should have paid those taxes in the country.
