Barcelona share summer transfer spending figures to public
Barcelona's president Josep Maria Bartomeu (pictured) took office after Sandro Rosell was forced to resign in January after he was hit with a court case over an alleged embezzlement of funds in Neymar's transfer.
Barcelona has opted for total transparency in the transfer market following the controversy surrounding the deal to bring Neymar to Camp Nou last year, releasing its summer spending figures to the media on Tuesday.
Barca bought Neymar from Santos in a deal the club claimed cost €57.1 million last summer, but Blaugrana president Sandro Rosell was eventually forced to resign in January after he was hit with a court case over an alleged embezzlement of funds in the controversial transfer.
New chief Josep Maria Bartomeu later revealed the figures behind the deal, which brought the total operation up to €86.2 million.
