president and club to stand trial over tax case

Spanish giants Barcelona have found themselves in legal trouble following the signing of Brazilian star Neymar back in 2013.

A Spanish judge has indicted Barcelona president and his predecessor Sandro Rosell for tax fraud and fraudulent administration in a probe focusing on the signing of Neymar.

Investigative magistrate Pablo Ruz is overseeing an investigation into whether Rosell misappropriated funds to hide the transfer cost paid to Santos for the striker in 2013.

Ruz has accused the club and its management of fabricating a labyrinth of contracts to hide the real cost of signing Neymar.

Bartomeu took over when Rosell resigned in January 2014 after being named a suspect in the case and investigated for misappropriating funds to hide the transfer cost.

No trial date has been set.
