Brazilian football side Santos want their former forward Neymar banned for six months and action taken by world football governing body FIFA against both the player and Barcelona.
Media reports indicate that the South American side has asked the governing body to intervene as they feel Neymar breached a contract with them in joining ‘La Blaugrana’.
Neymar denies the allegation and insists he left for Barca with Santos permission, but Santos want a €55 million compensatory sum.
Santos accuse Neymar of violating Article 62 0f FIFA’s disciplinary code, which is to prevent players ‘acting in bad faith,’ and of falling foul of two other rules, Article 17 (3) and 17 (5).
Neymar however insists he has a correspondence from the Santos President that gave him permission to speak to Barcelona in 2011.
