Neymar to go to court for fraud

Neymar has been ordered to appear in court next month as the transfer which took him from Santos to Barcelona remains in the spotlight.

Judge Jose de la Mata has requested his presence on February 2 to give evidence regarding the fraud and corruption charges relating to the 2013 move.

Current Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu will also appear in court, albeit one day earlier than Neymar, as will the Catalan club’s former president Sandro Rosell, who stepped down from his role over the transfer.

Proceedings centre on claims from Brazilian investment fund DIS that they should have received a higher portion of the original fee than they did.
