Just hours after scoring the only goal as Paris Saint-Germain beat bitter rivals Olympique de Marseille 1-0 in Ligue 1's Le Classique on Sunday, Neymar was in court in Barcelona on Monday. The Brazil international appeared in Barcelona with eight others to face fraud and corruption charges which date back to 2013 and his move from Santos to the Catalan giants.
Brazilian investment firm DIS owned 40% of Neymar's rights when he was a Santos player. DIS allege that his move from Brazil to Barcelona was incorrectly valued and understated. DIS are pushing the charges against him and Neymar is a named defendant alongside his parents, former Barca presidents Sandro Rosell and Josep Maria Bartomeu as well as representatives of both clubs and Santos president Odilio Rodrigues. Reuters reports that all nine deny any wrongdoing.
