Neymar fraud allegations….


Spanish prosecutors have called for Brazil and Barcelona football star Neymar to be tried for fraud. The prosecutors, from Spain’s top criminal court, allege Neymar and his father hid the true value of the player’s multi-million-euro transfer from Santos to Barcelona. A Brazilian investment fund that owned 40% of Neymar’s sports rights argues it was deprived of its full share. In previous interviews, Neymar, 24, has denied any wrongdoing. Barcelona said it paid €57m for Neymar in 2013, with the player’s parents, Neymar da Silva Santos and Nadine Goncalves da Silva Santos, receiving €40m and his former club, Santos, €17m. But investigators say the fee was closer to €83m and Barcelona concealed part of the deal. The club also denies any wrongdoing.
