Barcelona takes legal action against Neymar for not fulfilling his contract

23 August 2017

The £7.8m fee relates to a "loyalty bonus" which was included in Neymar's contract, and paid to the player, when he penned a five-year extension in October of last year.

Neymar's had an immediate impact with his new club, accounting for three goals and three assists in two Ligue 1 appearances for PSG.

Spanish Club Barcelona has filed a legal lawsuit against Paris Saint Germaine Striker, Neymar.

The 25-year old joined PSG in a world record fee of 222m euro (£200m) after PSG accepted to trigger his release clause.

After scoring twice on his home debut for PSG - a 6-2 thrashing of Toulouse on Sunday - Neymar took aim at the Barcelona board, claiming "there are directors that shouldn't be there".

Paris Saint-Germain have denied any wrongdoing and issued a statement declaring their "surprise" at Barcelona's decision to take legal action against Neymar for an alleged breach of contract.

La Liga accused PSG of violating Uefa's Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules and Barcelona previously said they would report the French side to Uefa for a FFP breach.

"The club also requests Paris Saint-Germain take on responsibility for the payment of these fees if the player can not do so himself", it said.

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.

Neymar did not publicly say he was considering a move to PSG until August 3, the day Barcelona terminated his contract and he signed with his new team. But with them [the board], no. For me, they shouldn't be in charge of Barca.

"To see my former teammates unhappy makes me sad also, because I have many friends [there]. Barca deserve much better, and everyone knows this".
