Barcelona's Brazilian star Neymar has been called to give evidence by Spain's national court on Febr. 2 for alleged fraud surrounding his transfer to Barcelona in 2013 .Both the player's parents, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu and former club president Sandro Rosell, as well as two directors of Neymar's former club Santos have also been called to declare, according to a court filing released on Wednesday.Public prosecutors filed for action to be taken against all the parties after a complaint of fraud and corruption was launched by the Brazilian investment fund DIS, which held 40 percent of Neymar's sporting rights when he played at Santos, at the court in June 2015 .It is alleged the overall fee was split between a number of different contracts between Barcelona, Santos and Neymar himself.
