Spanish prosecutors want Neymar to stand trial for fraud because of alleged irregularities involving his transfer to Barcelona three years ago.Neymar and his father, who is also his agent, committed fraud by trying to hide the real amount of his transfer in order to pay a lower commission to the investment group which owned part of his rights at the time, prosecutors said Tuesday.Prosecutors also cited Barcelona and its former president Sandro Rosell, as well as the former president of Brazilian club Santos.Santos officially received 17.1 million euros for Neymar's transfer to Barcelona, but prosecutors said the total amount paid by the Spanish club was 25.1 million euros, meaning DIS would be entitled to an additional 3.2 million euros.
