The national court last year rejected Neymar's request to
throw out a probe into the irregularities. The court is looking into a
complaint made by a Brazilian investment group which claims it was financially
harmed when Barcelona and Neymar allegedly withheld the real amount of the
player's transfer fee from Brazilian club Santos in 2013.
The complaint made in June by investment group DIS names
Neymar, his father and Barcelona as defendants, along with Rosell and Bartomeu.For
