Spain’s public prosecutor has called for Barcelona footballer Neymar to be sent to prison for two years for his part in a corruption case over his transfer from Brazilian club Santos to the Liga champions in 2013, said a court filing on Wednesday.

Judge Jose Perals also called for a five-year sentence for former Barca president Sandro Rosell and a fine of 8.4 million euros for the club, but called for charges against current president Josep Maria Bartomeu to be dropped.

The case stems from a complaint by a Brazilian investment group, DIS, which owned 40 percent of Neymar’s transfer rights.

DIS alleges that it received less money than it was entitled to as Barcelona concealed the real transfer fee.

Barcelona have been engulfed in legal troubles over Neymar’s transfer since 2013.
Rosell resigned as the club’s president in 2014 for his role in the affair and testified in court in February alongside Bartomeu, Neymar and Neymar’s father.
The club struck a deal with prosecutors in June to settle a separate case and paid a 5.5 million euro fine and avoided trial on charges of tax evasion over the transfer.Barca thought they had brought the affair to a close when judge Jose de la Mata archived the case in June, although Spain’s public prosecutor successfully overturned the ruling in September, allowing the case to proceed.
