Neymar Barcelona transfer case re-opened by Madrid court

A Madrid court has re-opened a case into alleged irregularities regarding the transfer of Neymar to Barcelona from Brazilian club Santos.
The announcement on Friday came less than three months after National Court judge Jose de la Mata shelved the complaint.
The complaint was brought by Brazilian investment group DIS against Brazil international Neymar, his father, former Barcelona president Sandro Rosell and former Santos president Odilio Rodrigues.
Prosecutors appealed Mata's decision and judge Angela Murillo Bordallo has ruled that there is still enough evidence to keep the case alive.
The Brazilian investment group was entitled to 40 percent of Neymar's transfer from Santos in 2013, but claimed it received a smaller compensation than it should have because part of the transfer fee was concealed.
Neymar and the other parties being accused by prosecutors have denied wrongdoing.
