Prosecutors seek 2-year prison term for Neymar over transfer
MADRID: Spanish prosecutors are seeking a two-year prison sentence and a $10.6 million fine for Neymar on corruption charges because of alleged irregularities during his transfer from Brazilian club Santos to Barcelona.
Prosecutors say they are seeking the same punishment for Neymar's father and former Barcelona president Sandro Rosell. Rosell is facing an additional three years for fraud charges.
They are all set to stand trial after a complaint brought by Brazilian investment group DIS, which was entitled to 40 percent of Neymar's transfer from Santos in 2013 but said it received a smaller compensation because part of the transfer fee was concealed.
