Barcelona have been under investigation for the controversial transfer of Brazilian prodigy Neymar since January. 

Former Santos president Luis Alvaro de Oliveira Ribeiro has revealed some rather peculiar details about the courting of Neymar.

In an ESPN Brazil interview (h/t Marca), Ribeiro claimed that Neymar's father, Neymar da Silva, milked as much as he could with the transfer, including an orgy in a Piccadilly hotel and a whole lot of coffee. 

The €90 million included coffees for Neymar's father, as well as an orgy in a hotel in Piccadilly, London, because Neymar's father was looking to claim everything. He never once paid for coffee. I paid for the 200 coffees he had with me.

That included prostitutes and a plane to take him to Florianapolis to see the national team. He wasn't short of money. He had Cury, his adviser in Barcelona, who had orders to spend what he wanted, as did Neymar. 

He's a liar who likes to abuse and only things about money. To give you an idea, in the last contracts he demanded a clause stating the club had to pay for first-class flight tickets for him and two business-class seats for his advisors to watch Neymar play away from home.

It didn't matter whether it was for the national team or in the domestic league.
