Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has had an astronomical tax debt to the Spanish authorities since leaving Barcelona in 2017.

It appears from a list published by the Spanish tax authorities,.

The debt will be 34.6 million euros, which corresponds to 378 million kroner at the current exchange rate.

According to the website, this is due to a bonus Neymar received from FC Barcelona in connection with a contract extension before he left the club in 2017.

There has been a lawsuit between Neymar and Barcelona over this bonus after the club withheld some of the money. In June, a Spanish court ruled that Neymar must pay the old club just over 70 million kroner.

Neymar thought Barcelona owed him 43.6 million euros (477 million kroner at today’s exchange rate) as a loyalty and signing bonus from when he renewed his contract with the club in October 2016.

The extent to which the ruling this summer affects Neymar’s tax debt is unclear.

AFP has asked if the tax debt applies to the transfer from Brazilian Santos in 2013, but has not received an answer. The Brazilian played for Barcelona in the period 2013–2017 before disappearing to Paris Saint-Germain for the record sum of 2.4 billion kroner.

According to AFP, Neymar is the individual who owes the most tax to the Spanish tax authorities. It is also the first time it has been confirmed that the football star has a large tax debt. A number of football personalities have clashed with Spanish tax authorities in the past, such as Lionel Messi and José Mourinho.
