Barcelona sues PSG's Neymar for breach of contract

Barcelona sues PSG's Neymar for breach of contract

In the days after he signed for the French club, Barcelona refused to pay the reported €26m (NZ$42m) instalment of the loyalty bonus which he was due to receive this summer, citing breach of contract.

As well as the 8.5m euro bonus, the club wants "an additional 10% because of delayed payment".

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

Barcelona has reacted bitterly to his move, first refusing to pay his father (who doubles as his agent) a €25 million (£23 million/$30 million) fee for brokering his original contract extension, then delaying his PSG debut by failing to send his worldwide transfer certificate promptly.

Barcelona said they had sent the Royal Spanish Football Federation the lawsuit against Neymar that they submitted on August 11 to a court in Barcelona so it could pass it on "to the appropriate authorities in the French Football Federation and FIFA", Barcelona said in a statement.

If the Spanish Super Cup is a determinant, then it could be said that Barcelona are really missing Neymar as they were lost during both legs of the game. "The club also requests that PSG subsidise the amounts in the event that the player can not take responsibility".

"FC Barcelona has promoted these actions in defence of its interests, after a unilateral termination of the contract urged by Neymar Jr, a few months after the signature of its renewal until 2021". But with them [the board], no.

"To see my former teammates unhappy makes me sad also, because I have many friends [there]". I spent four very happy years there and left happy, but not with them.

"Barca deserve much better and the whole world knows it".
