Jordi Cases 'could withdraw complaint'

Jordi Cases, the Barcelona fan who launched the legal action that has led to the resignation of Sandro Rosell as club president, is reportedly considering withdrawing his official complaint against Neymar’s controversial signing last summer.

• Tomas: Resignation must bring election forward
• ‘Rosell flees’: Spanish press on exit

On Friday, Cases' lawyer, Felipe Izquierdo, said his client was "surprised" by Rosell's decision to step down.

Izquierdo even joined the chorus of concerned Barcelona supporters, telling Catalan radio RAC 1 that in his "personal opinion" his client should withdraw the lawsuit so that "people who don't have anything to do with Barca can't take advantage of the situation and join the legal action."

Rosell resigned on Thursday, with the development coming as a Madrid court looks at the possible “diversion” of money from the transfer. Criminal charges for figures in the deal are also reportedly being considered.

The case was set in motion by Cases, a disgruntled Barca socio and pharmacist from the town of Olesa near Barcelona. Last September, Cases led a failed campaign to censure Rosell and three of his vice presidents, including Bartomeu for 'lying' to club members.

Cases was reported also to be keen to see new club chief Josep Maria Bartomeu included in the Neymar complaint investigation.

El Pais reported that Cases, who brought the case after the Barcelona board had refused to publicly explain the details of the case, did not think his actions would have such ramifications and wants to ensure no further damage is done to the club.

However, with his complaint already having been accepted by Judge Pablo Ruz, the legal wheels are in motion and are unlikely to be stopped.

Cases’ lawyer told RAC 1 on Friday that he believed the case should be halted because it could be hijacked by others who wished to damage Barcelona.

“My opinion is that this should stop now,” he said. “There is a problem and it is that, in the phase we are in, there could be people who have nothing to do with Barca who take advantage of the situation. I do not want that.”

A few hours earlier, Izquierdo had told Catalan station 8TV that Bartomeu and vice-president Javier Faus would also be caught up in the case.

“Rosell should have resigned before,” he said. “Now we are going for Bartomeu. We are going to widen the demand to senores Bartomeu and Faus. We also have to speak about what happens with the rest of the board, who are also aware of all that has happened.”

Cases told El Pais he had not wanted to harm either Catalonia or Barca, but wondered why concerned Real Madrid supporters did not take similar action against their club when they were concerned about transfer deals.

"I do not like this being used against Catalonia and Barca," he said. "As a Catalan and independence supporter, it makes me indignant.

"I hope that in Madrid they ask why the club has paid 95 million euros for Bale and, according to Tottenham, it was 105 million. Why does nobody look at that contract?"
