Neymar, who denied the allegations, said he had no recollection of participating in any negotiations. His relocation from Santos to Barcelona was agreed upon in 2011, and it was completed two years later.

DIS claims it lost out because the transfer fee was undervalued when it paid 2 million Euro for a 40% stake in Neymar’s rights when he was 17. Clubs have offered up to 60 million Euro, according to DIS lawyer Paulo Nasser.

At the time of Neymar’s transfer, Barcelona stated that the fee was 57.1 million Euro, of which 40 million Euro went to his family – DIS received a 40% share of the remaining 17.1 million Euro, which went to Brazilian club Santos.

DIS had asked for a five-year prison sentence for Neymar, as well as prison sentences for Rosell and Bartomeu, as well as a fine of 149 million euros.

Prosecutors sought a five-year prison sentence for Rosell, an 8.4 million euro fine for Barcelona, and a two-year sentence and a ten million euro fine for Neymar.

Baker McKenzie, the Neymar family’s lawyers, claimed that Spanish courts “lack jurisdiction to prosecute the Neymar family and their company N&N” because the crimes were committed by Brazilian nationals outside of Spanish territory.

They also stated that the alleged crimes in Brazil were not punishable under Brazilian law.
