The Spanish National Court also ordered that Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu and the man he replaced in the role – Sandro Rosell – will be sent to trial.

The alleged “business corruption and fraud” offences relate to Neymar’s transfer to Barcelona from Brazil-based side Santos in 2013, even though all parties involved deny any wrongdoing.

Prosecutors want a two-year prison sentence for Neymar, although as he is a first-time offender that would be unlikely to result in jail time in the Spanish system.
