Corruption and fraud charges against Neymar have been dropped by prosecutors in Spain.

The charges were made against the Paris St-Germain and Brazil forward and others accused in a trial over his 2013 transfer from Santos to Barcelona.

Prosecutors had initially sought a two-year jail term and a 10m euro (£8.6m) fine for the 30-year-old.

But they announced the withdrawal of charges “against all the accused for all the allegations” they had faced.

The other defendants in the case included Neymar’s parents, the two clubs, former Barcelona presidents Josep Maria Bartomeu and Sandro Rosell, and former Santos president Odilio Rodrigues.
