Barcelona Sued Over Unpaid Bonus To Neymar.
A €26 million loyalty bonus has emerged as a point of conflict between the player and his former employers, and could end up in the courts
The business that looks after Neymar’s affairs confirmed it has begun legal action against Barcelona over alleged unpaid bonuses for the forward.
Barcelona declined to pay a €26 million bonus included in Neymar’s contract renewal signed in 2016 after completing his world-record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
Furthermore, the Brazilian faces legal action from the Catalans over an alleged breach of contract.
The club contended in a statement that the clause relating to the payment was rendered null and void when he left Camp Nou, while agent and father Neymar Sr. has accused Barca of “blackmail”.
Now NN Consultoria has announced it will be pursuing the bonus through the courts in its own counter-suit as the business registered its “surprise” at Barca’s stance over the matter.
The unpaid loyalty bonus is also being investigated by FIFA, although the world governing body has so far declined to comment on the matter.
