Neymar Wins Championship but Faces Tax Evasion Investigation

On Saturday Barcelona beat Juventus 3-1 in Berlin, Germany to win the Champions League Final in soccer (or football as it’s known everywhere but here). Neymar, from Brazil, is one of Barcelona’s star players.

Neymar might have enjoyed the game (and results) but the news out of Brazil might put a tarnish on everything: Neymar is under investigation for tax evasion. First reported by the Brazilian Epoca magazine, the alleged evasion took place form 2011-2014 and involves the money for the transfer of Neymar from Brazil to Barcelona. What was once €17.1 million became €57 million, with some of this supposedly ending up with Neymar.
