The footballer had repeatedly protested against the allegations in the last few months stating that nothing of that sort had happened. It will be interesting to see whether the case turns in favour of Neymar.

The 27-year-old Brazilian footballer has not yet played for his club Paris Saint-German due to injury and also reports claiming that he wanted a move to Barcelona. According to reports, the former Barcelona star was linked up with the Catalan club throughout the transfer season.

But somehow it did not work out as the Paris-based club was asking for more than what Barcelona had to offer. Reports also claimed that the PSG star refused to go for training and play the pre-season matches as he desperately wanted the move to Barcelona.

The 27-year-old star featured in his first game after suffering an ankle injury in June for Brazil against Colombia. He scored the second-half equaliser in the friendly match which ended 2-2.
