Neymar could face jail time

Paris Saint Germain and Brazil forward Neymar Jr could face a prison sentence of up to six years if found guilty of fraud and corruption, according to a Spanish judge.

There were alleged irregularities involving the Neymar’s transfer from Santos to Barcelona in the summer of 2013, and on Wednesday the court stated that the player could face a sentence of four to six years.

Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu, former president Sandro Rosell, Neymar’s parents, along with Barcelona and Santos, are also facing charges.

However all accused parties have denied any wrongdoing and a trial date has yet to be set.
