Spanish prosecutor drops charges against Neymar, others

Spanish prosecutors on Friday dropped all charges of fraud and corruption against Brazilian attacker Neymar and other suspects over his transfer to Barcelona from Santos in 2013, the prosecutor told a court.

Prosecutors wanted a two-year prison term for Neymar and the payment of a €10 million ($9.95 million) fine.

A source close to the Neymar family told Reuters that their legal representatives would claim Baker Mckenzie charges from the private prosecution for what they consider to be recklessness, acting in bad faith and for abuse of process.

They also reserve the right to claim damages.
