Neymar To Pay Barca €6.7m Over Failed Lawsuit
Neymay Jr

Barca welcomed the decision at Social Court 15 on Friday, where Neymar was told he must deliver €6.7m to his former employers after a failed bonus lawsuit he filed against them in 2017.

Neymar has been ordered by a judge to pay Barca the total sum of €6.7million over a contract dispute with the LaLiga champions back in the summer of 2017, when he was set to join PSG.

The Paris Saint-German and Brazil forward had claimed he was owed €43.6million by Barca in unpaid bonuses during his time with the LaLiga giants.

Neymar insisted he was due the massive sum as a loyalty bonus, having signed a brand new five-year contract with the Catalan giants in 2016.

Neymar Jr, who joined PSG for a world record fee of €222m in August 2017, has instead been told he must pay back the said sum to his former employers – although an appeal may well be lodged.

Barca, who are linked with a move to re-sign Neymar, welcomed the decision on Friday.

A club statement said: “FC Barcelona expresses its satisfaction with the decision announced today by Social Court 15 in Barcelona in regard to the lawsuit involving FC Barcelona and also the player Neymar Jr regarding the quantity of the signing bonus within the final renewal of the player’s contract.

“The ruling has fully dismissed his (Neymar) claim in a lawsuit for payment of 43.6 million euros, and has accepted an oversized amount plea from the defence presented by Barca. And as a punishment, the player must return €6.7million to the club.

“Since the player’s representative is entitled to appeal this decision, the club shall still fervently defend its legitimate interests.”
