Neymar's father reveals deal details

SAO PAULO - The father of Brazil star Neymar on Tuesday denied signing a pre-contract with Barcelona until his son had left Santos for the Liga giants — but did admit to receiving 10 million euros ($F25.734m) in 2011 to guarantee a move by 2014.

Denying any irregularities, Neymar senior told a press conference in Santos: "I asked Barcelona to drop confidentiality (concerning a contract) so everything was transparent and clean. I don't owe anything."

The Neymar transfer has engendered controversy in Catalonia and forced the resignation of Barca's former president Sandro Rosell owing to a judicial wrangle over the deal.

The transfer cost 57.1 million euros ($F146.940m), plus a two million-euro ($F5.146m) bonus if the 21-year-old star makes the finals of the FIFA World Player of Year award.

Neymar also will earn an annual salary of 11.3 million euros ($F29.081m) to be paid over five years.
