A court in Brazil has frozen £33.1
million worth of Neymar’s assets
following allegations of tax
evasion.

The Sao Paulo federal court
alleges that the former Santos
star evaded 63m Brazilian reals
(£10.5m) in taxes between 2011
and 2013, before his big-money
move to Barcelona.

Judge Carlos Muta, who presided
over the case, states Neymar is
“solely responsible for his
income declaration”, and further
claims the player only declared
assets worth 19.6m reals (£3.2m)
Property and vehicles owned by
Neymar as an individual and
three companies he is the
principal owner of, along with
his father, are included in the
order.

The player’s parents have since
released a
statement through their one of
their businesses, N & N
consultancy, declaring
themselves as the sole owners of
the monies in question.
