Neymar’s dad gets £35m from Barca as commission

There has been a running dispute among all the stakeholders having an interest in Santos’ young sensation Neymar since he signed a five year deal with Barcelona. In fact, some of them were also threatening to go to the court if Brazilin club does not declare who will get what out of total amount paid by the Spanish giant for Neymar’s 100% rights. Everybody knows that Barca has agreed to pay a total sum of £49m to Santos for gaining full rights of the forward, but since Santo did not have the full rights in the player; other stake holders were also worried about their share out of this amount. But now, Barca has declared that it has paid Neymar’s dad a sum of £35m as commission including the sum they had given in the last year, and remaining amount would be distributed among other key interest holders: Santos, DIS, and Teisa. Reportedly, latter two had 40% and 5% stake in player’s proceeds; hence they look to be finally getting something out of this mega transfer deal. Reports are also coming in from DIS den that they want more share out of total deal amount between Santos and La Liga champions, in fact, they want to have all the deal papers to see what the actual amount is and how it is decided to be distributed. Supermarket giant’s executive Director Roberto Moreno said to a news source that “I’ve not been shown a single document, so I will go to Santos’ headquarters tomorrow. After that we will decide if we need to go to the courts. I’ve read lots of things in the media but seen no documentary evidence.”

Actually, the total pay package, apparently, has something extra for the Brazilian club if Neymar could secure a place in top three players in Ballon d’Or ranking within next five years. Accordingly, Blaugrana will pay additional two millions for the achievement to his former club. In last two years, Neymar could only settle himself on 10th and 13th spots in Ballon d’Or ranking, so it could be a reality to see him in the top players of 2013.

As far his closest competitor Lionel Messi is concerned; he has won the inaugural three editions of the Ballon d’Or along with winning Player of the Year award in 2009. Additionally, he has more records, which could be on the target line for the new entrant to the La Liga club.
