Barcelona To Sue Neymar For Breach Of Contract

Barcelona have announced that they are suing Neymar for a breach of contract, saying they’re owed €8.5m (around £7.8m) from last year’s renewal bonus.

Neymar left Barcelona for Paris St Germain for a world record transfer fee of £198m three weeks ago.

“Barcelona decided to take these actions in defence of their interests, after a unilateral termination of contract urged by Neymar Jr a few months after signing the renewal until the end of the year 2021,” a statement read.

The lawsuit was submitted on 11 August to the Labour Tribunal in Barcelona.

Following the transfer, Barcelona announced the club was withholding a further 26m euro (£23m) loyalty bonus from the player.

Neymar criticised the directors of the club on Sunday after scoring twice on his home debut for PSG in a 6-2 win over Toulouse.

“I spent four beautiful years there and parted happy,” said the 25-year-old. “But with [the board], no.

“For me, they are not the people who should be there, for the direction of Barca. Barca deserve much better.”
