Citing documents from the finance ministry, Brazilian magazine Epoca said tax officials have been examining Neymar's accounts for more than a year. Federal prosecutors say they hope to file charges in the next few weeks.

Neymar's Barcelona face Juventus tomorrow in Berlin in the Champions League final.

The magazine said investigators have zeroed in on a firm called N&N Consultoria Esportiva e Empresarial. Neymar's parents are listed as partners in the company.

Authorities are investigating what they call an unusual cash flow of 115 million Brazilian reals (£24m) between 2011 and 2014.

Neymar moved to Spain in 2013 from Brazilian club Santos. Santos took legal action over the controversial move.
