PSG striker Neymar’s off-pitch woes continue to mount, as Brazilian tax authorities put a freeze on dozens of his mansions and other properties amid a long-running tax dispute.
Folha de S.Paulo newspaper, a local Brazilian media outlet, reported on Monday that Brazilian authorities blocked 36 properties in Brazil as they seek 69 million reais (£14 million) in back taxes.
The media outlet claim that amount is due in connection with Neymar’s 2013 transfer from Santos to FC Barcelona.
This means Neymar can use the properties but not sell them.
Folha cited an unspecified court ruling as approving the action by Brazil tax authorities.
It was not immediately possible to locate the ruling.
Brazil’s tax agency did not respond to a request for comment.
Also, a spokeswoman for Neymar did not have any comment.
In addition to his tax fight, Neymar in recent weeks has been accused of rape, an allegation that Brazilian police are investigating.
A Brazilian woman accused the 27-year-old Neymar of raping her at a Paris hotel last month.
He denies the allegation and says the relationship was consensual.
It will be recalled that a report in L’Equipe said PSG were prepared to sell Neymar, as chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi warned that irresponsible behaviour from players won’t be tolerated anymore.
