Brazilian company tells Neymar to come clean over transfer

Madrid - The Brazilian company that says it hasn't been properly compensated for Neymar's transfer to Barcelona, has called for the player to come clean and put an end to his judicial problems in Spain and Brazil.

The co-founder of Grupo Sonda, which invested in Neymar early in his career, issued a public message to the player in a news conference on Thursday, saying he risks having his career tainted by a crime. Delcir Sonda said he "feels cheated" by Neymar and the player's father.

DIS, the investment group that belongs to Sonda, has claimed at a Madrid court that it was financially damaged because Barcelona, Neymar, and Brazilian club Santos withheld the real amount of the player's transfer fee in 2013. DIS was entitled to 40 percent of the transfer.
