The board of directors of Barcelona, chaired by Joan Laporta, has secured 55 million euros of income for the 2021-2022 academic year thanks to having made a provision (included in the losses of 481 million euros for the 2020-2021 academic year) for possible costs of the disputes that had been opened with Neymar, which have come to nothing after reaching an agreement between both parties.
This is how the portal ‘2Playbook’ has advanced it, which explains that from the Camp Nou offices it is ensured that this maneuver was “required by law” and that there was no agreement with Neymar when the accounts for the 2020-2021 season were closed on June 30.
The pact with the ex-Azulgrana was announced on July 26 and led to Neymar renouncing his claim of 54 million euros from Barça in exchange for the club letting the 16.7 million it asked for. In total, there were four demands between Neymar and Barça.
In addition to a provision for these litigation, the Laporta board made another provision of approximately 45 million for the two open inspections of the Tax Agency. Everything that is not having to make use of the total of that amount will also suppose income for the present course. EFE (HN)
