Barcelona, Neymar settle legal dispute over PSG move
Barcelona, Jul 26 (EFE).- FC Barcelona has come to a “friendly” agreement with former player Neymar Jr. to end a legal tussle over contract disputes.
“The club and the player have signed a transactional agreement to put an end to the judicial procedures that were pending between the two parties,” Barcelona said in a statement.
Neymar joined Barcelona in the 2013/14 season and left in 2017 to join Paris Saint-Germain for a record-breaking 222 million euros.
The shock move to the French club from the Catalan giants sparked a legal dispute over his contract, which he had renewed just a year before jumping over to Ligue 1. He had been contracted with Barcelona until 2021.
Neymar filed a lawsuit of his own demanding his contract renewal bonus, which the club withheld due to his departure. EFE
