Neymar Ordered To Pay Barcelona 6.7m euros. Why?

Posted by

Neymar, Paris St-Germain forward must pay 6.7m euros (£6.1m) to his former club Barcelona, a Spanish court has ruled. The Brazil international who left Barcelona in August 2017 claimed he was owed 43.6m euros in loyalty bonuses by the Spanish giant but a judge ruled in favour of the La Liga side. The other option left for the 28-year-old Neymar, is to appeal against the decision.

On the court ruling, Barcelona said they welcomed the judgement and would “continue to firmly defend its legitimate interests”. The Brazil forward also made a complaint to world governing body Fifa after Barca refused to pay him following his 222m euros (£200m) move in 2017. As well as not paying Neymar, Barcelona started legal proceedings against him to pay back £8m he received when he signed a new deal with them in 2016.
