Moreover, a Brazilian court last month froze $47 million (£34.5 million, 42 million euros) in assets belonging to the player over tax evasion allegations.“We have three years left on the contract. We, or my family, are suffering an insecure tax situation that affects the planning of his career,” Neymar Sr told Barcelona sports daily Sport.“We need these issues to stop. How can we extend something if we don’t have tax stability?”Neymar isn’t the only Barca player to be plagued by tax problems as four-time World Player of the Year Lionel Messi is to face trial over tax fraud over his image rights between 2007 and 2009.Fellow-Argentine Javier Mascherano is also to go before a judge later this month in a case related to the tax payments on his image rights.“We are seeing various players suffering tax penalties. Why would I anticipate a renewal if I don’t have judicial security that will back us to be able to work? I intend to wait and be calm to manage Neymar in the best way possible.”On the field Neymar produced one of best performances in a Barcelona shirt on Saturday as he scored four and assisted Luis Suarez for the Catalans’ other goal in a 5-2 win over Rayo Vallecano.And his father insisted Barcelona is the best place for him to keep developing despite admitting that Manchester United had tried to sign the 23-year-old during the summer.“They phoned Barcelona. They got a response that Neymar had a contract and that they would not sell him.

According to the sources, in Wednesday’s accident Shaikh’s bike had no insurance and as a result, he will not get any compensation.

A report showed that 55% of responders voted against the proposal.Unions want a 5.1% pay rise this year, arguing that their wages have been frozen since 2011 amid restructuring and noting that the company’s profits are up.The company argued it must preserve its ability to stay competitive against low-cost airlines and big-spending Mideast and Asian carriers.“This is a huge waste that can only make our competitors rejoice,” Janaillac said of the failed vote.Air France-KLM shares fell earlier Friday after the company announced the strikes had already cost the airline at least 300 million euros ($359,000). Air France-KLM also forecast a “notably” lower income this year compared to 2017.More news: A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to passengerJanaillac, who had been in the post since July 2016, met with the company board Thursday to discuss the quarterly results and the forecast.After a protracted financial slump, Air France-KLM profits climbed last year as it expanded its global alliances and launched a new budget airline. The growth was helped by years of job cuts and other restructuring efforts.Janaillac warned last year that volatile fuel prices and geopolitical risks could threaten the company’s turnaround, but didn’t appear to predict the heavy toll that the strikes would take.Janaillac will formally resign at a Board of Directors’ meeting on May 9, the company said, adding that “it will be their responsibility to take the appropriate measures to ensure the continuity of the group and Air France during the transition period.”The CEO of Air France, Franck Terner, will oversee the day-to-day operations of the company.
