Barcelona player Neymar and his club will stand trial on corruption charges over his transfer from Brazilian team Santos, after losing a final appeal.
The case relates to a complaint from Brazilian investment group DIS.
The group says it was entitled to 40 percent of the transfer fee Barcelona paid Santos for Neymar but received a smaller compensation because part of the fee was concealed by those involved.
Prosecutors are seeking a two-year prison sentence and a fine of nearly 10 million euros for Neymar and his father on corruption charges, although they are not likely to face any jail time if found guilty because they would be first-time offenders.
Prosecutors are also seeking a fine of about €9m from Barcelona and €7m from Santos.
