Madrid unable to accept the Neymar snub, Josep Bartomeu
According to Joesph Bartemou who is the president of FC Bacelona, the present investigation of Neymar’s transfer from Santos to Barcelona is a result of the bitterness of rival club Real Madrid. Bartomeu suggested that Real Madrid are not accepting the fact that Neymar preferred Real Madrid over them. He suggested that Real Madrid are not understanding this simple thing that Neymar chose Barcelona. And Real Madrid are creating problems for Neymar as well as Barcelona.
The Barcelona President will stand trial over the allegations of fraud and tax evasion in regards to the acquisition of Neymar. The transfer under question took place in summer of 2013. Ever since the player joined Barcelona. Cost of his transfer has been a matter of dispute. It was believed that the original amount was €57. However it was claimed later that the actual figure was around €86.2 million. Regardless of the transfer dispute it is quite clear that the transfer has been very beneficial for Barcelona. With Neymar in their ranks they won the treble last season. And Neymar played a crucial role as he scored 39 goals in total.
Either the Barcelona President is feeling the heat ahead of the trial or maybe he is right. That Real Madrid are not able to get over the fact that Neymar preferred Barcelona over them.What do you make of this situation? Let us know about your thoughts, in the comments section!
