14 January 2014, 09:17
Madrid - Barcelona said they have asked a Madrid court to dismiss a legal case over the transfer of Neymar.
Barcelona said on Monday that "there are no illegal actions in the events originally described." The case pertains to the €57-million transfer of the Brazil striker from Santos to Barcelona last summer.
A club member presented the lawsuit demanding clarification over where the remaining money went after Santos received only €17 million.
On Friday, the state prosecutor called on the judge overseeing the case to open criminal proceedings against club president Sandro Rosell.
