Barcelona: A Barcelona court has said that FC Barcelona must pay two fines totalling 5.5 million euros ($5.8 million) for two tax offences committed in the signing of Neymar, in accordance with the agreement that the club already reached with the prosecution.

After a brief hearing in which Barça’s legal counsel, Ramon Gomez Ponti and lawyer Cristobal Martell, presented the agreement signed with the public prosecution, the court ratified the fine on Wednesday, reports Efe news agency. This ruling comes to repair the damage caused by Barça's tax offences, which amount to $13.86 million, and to establish measures to prevent similar offences from happening in the future.
