Real Madrid will appear in the refereeing corruption case involving Barcelona as an injured party, once proceedings move forward.

Spanish prosecutors charged Barcelona with corruption on Friday, over payments the club made to a former vice-president of Spain’s referees’ committee through a company owned by him.

According to Spanish prosecutors, the Catalan club paid a total of more than seven point three million euro to Jose Negreira, former referee and ex-vice president of the refereeing committee of the Spanish football federation between 1994 and 2018.

Two of the club’s former presidents, Josep Bartomeu and Sandro Rosell, as well as Negreira are facing the same charge, originating from the Barcelona prosecutor’s office.

Negreira was allegedly paid for providing the club with advice on topics relating to referees, according to Barcelona.
