Neymar and his father are facing a corruption trial after a Spanish judge re-opened the case into his twenty-thirteen transfer to Barcelona from Santos.
Barca president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, and his predecessor Sandro Rosell will also be implemented in the trial after DIS.
The Brazilian investment group which owned forty percent of the attacker’s sporting rights – alleged they received less money than what they were entitled to, due to part of the deal being concealed.
Judge Jose De La Mata requested a trial at Spain’s National Court, and prosecutors now have ten days to formalise that request.
The Board of Directors have decided to appeal against the interlocutory judgement made by judge José de la Mata in Madrid,” a Barcelona club statement read.
Neymar had appeared in court in February and De La Mata ruled that FIFA regulations ‘were not properly followed’ but that it was an issue for a civil court, not a criminal court.
