    With the World Cup barely a month away, Brazilian superstar Neymar goes on trial in Spain today over alleged irregularities in his transfer to Barcelona nearly a decade ago. The Paris Saint-Germain player, 30, arrived at the Provincial Court of Barcelona this morning for the trial, which is the culmination of a years-long legal saga over his 2013 transfer from the Brazilian club Santos.
