The club received the information on Friday morning after the Brazilian winger allegedly threw a chair, a chair which landed on the ground, at Neyma during a game between Alaves and Valladolid in February.
Neymar, who scored against the club, was later seen crying and later hospitalized in hospital, after suffering injuries to his face.
The Brazilian starlets father, who has a close relationship with the club president, was reportedly present during the match.
