The prospect of Barcelona superstar Neymar standing trial moved closer on Monday after a Madrid judge accepted an appeal by prosecutors for new corruption charges to be brought against the Brazilian striker.

The decision overturned a ruling in July that said irregularities detected in Neymar's 2013 transfer to Barcelona were an issue for a civil court, not a criminal court.

Neymar's parents, along with Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu and his predecessor Sandro Rosell also face corruption charges.
