A Spanish judge has accepted corruption charges against Neymar for irregularities regarding his transfer to Barcelona, opening the way for a trial involving the Brazilian forward and his parents.
Current Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu and former president Sandro Rosell are also set to stand trial after a complaint brought by Brazilian investment group DIS, which was entitled to 40 percent of Neymar’s transfer from Brazilian club Santos in 2013 but said it received a smaller compensation than it should have because part of the transfer fee was concealed.
With Monday’s ruling by National Court judge Jose de la Mata, prosecutors will have 10 days to formalize their request for a trial.
The ruling was expected after prosecutors won an appeal to keep the case alive two months ago.
