LaLiga News: Barcelona and Neymar reach an agreement to end the contractual dispute


Barcelona and Neymar have reached an amicable deal to end their long-running dispute over the Paris Saint-Germain striker’s contract.

The Brazilian international said he was owed € 43.6 million in unpaid bonuses by the giants of the Liga Barca.

Neymar insisted that he should owe the huge sum as a loyalty bonus, having signed a new five-year contract with the Catalan club in 2016.

A judge ruled in favor of Barça in June 2020, ordering Neymar to pay 6.7 million euros to his former employers.

Barça on Monday revealed that the case is now closed.

A statement from the club stated: “FC Barcelona announce that they have closed out of court and amicably several civil and civil disputes that have opened with Brazilian player Neymar da Silva Santos Junior.

“Thus, the club and the player signed a settlement agreement to end the pending legal proceedings between both parties: three lawsuits and one civil proceeding.”

Neymar joined PSG for a world record of € 222 million in August 2017.
