DIS, the investment group that belongs to Sonda, has claimed in 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 .Neymar and his father appeared before a judge in Madrid on Tuesday to testify in an investigation into the transfer. The Brazilian club claims it also has been hurt in the transfer.Sonda said Neymar's father tried to re-buy Sonda's 40 percent stake in the player for about 4 million euros ($4.4 million). Neymar has also been facing problems with Brazil's tax office, which last year froze assets related to him valued at about 189 million Brazilian reals ($43 million) because of allegations of tax evasion.
