The Spanish Prosecutor’s office requires for a player of the Brazilian national team and Spanish “Barcelona” Neymar two years in prison and a fine of 10 million euros on charges of fraud. It is reported TASS with reference to the radio station Cadena Ser.
The Prosecutor’s office believes that the player and his father knowingly participated in the conspiracy in order to deceive the Brazilian investment company DIS in the transfer of the Brazilian player from Santos to Barcelona in 2013.
DIS at the time of the transaction owned 40% of the rights to the player and in the end, she lost 40 million euros in its implementation due to the undervaluation of the transfer. Initially it was announced that Neymar cost Barcelona at 57.1 million euros, but later, the leadership team recognized the availability of additional contracts, according to which the Brazilian has a cost of 100 million
The lawyers DIS, according to the newspaper Marca, require for Neymar a five-year prison term. They also intend to remove from football activities and go to jail the former and current presidents of “Barcelona” Sandro Rosell and josé Maria Bartomeu, as well as to 195-million payment from Barcelona.
In June, Spanish prosecutors have wound up proceedings in respect of Neymar, Rosell and Bartomeu, but soon the case was closed. Now, the national high court reopened the investigation against the defendants.
In the “Barcelona” Neymar was the winner of the Champions League, UEFA super Cup, twice won the Spanish championship and the national Cup. He recently extended his contract with the Catalans until 2021.
