Spanish prosecutors recommended that Brazilian star Neymar be handed a two-year jail sentence and a fine of 10 million euros ($10.6 million) for alleged corrupt practices in his transfer to Barcelona, a court filing revealed Wednesday.The case initiated with a complaint from Brazilian investment company DIS, which owned 40 percent of Neymar's sporting rights at the time of his transfer from Santos in 2013 .However, DIS also recommended that Neymar be banned from playing football during any judicial sentence.The company believes it was cheated of its real share because part of the transfer fee was concealed by Barcelona, Santos and the Neymar family.Neymar is far from the only Barcelona star to find himself embroiled in problems with the Spanish authorities.
