Barcelona Unveils New $2.1M Camp Nou Entrance; LFP Now Evaluating Neymar Signing
Published February 26, 2014
FANS WANT VOTE: AS reported that 86.8% of fans "polled in a survey want the club to hold presidential elections." Current President Josep Maria Bartomeu took over the role following Sandro Rosell's resignation (AS, 2/25).
LFP AWAITING DOCUMENTS: The EFE reported the Spanish Football League (LFP) is "waiting for Barcelona to send it new documents relating to the Neymar signing." Depending "on the information the club provides, it could face a fine" of up to €300,000 ($412,000). LFP President Javier Tebas said, "One thing is what is happening at the judicial level and the other is whether the Neymar signing meets LFP regulations." A Spanish court is "investigating the transaction and the club is currently facing charges of tax fraud." Tebas said, "They sent us some documentation and we requested more. There is a committee composed of attorneys and auditors and they will be the ones who decide whether there will be a [LFP] disciplinary investigation." Tebas added that according to LFP statutes, "the club could be fined" from €60,000 ($82,400)-€300,000 (EFE, 2/25).
