Barcelona has reached an “amicable” out-of-court settlement with their former player Neymar to end their legal dispute.
So, Recall Neymar, who now plays for Paris Saint-Germain sued the Spanish giants over unpaid bonuses due as part
of a contract, he signed in October 2016, before his €222m record transfer to his current club.
Furthermore, Neymar sued the Catalan club for €46.3 million euros, and they counter-sued for breach of contract.
A judge in Barcelona sided with the club, ordering the Brazilian in June last year to pay the Camp Nou side
€6.7 million euros.
However, Spanish media said Neymar had appealed and also launched a new case against Barca. That case is now void.
Barcelona said in a statement that three labor claims and a civil suit had been
“ended out of court in amicable fashion”.
“FC Barcelona announces that it has ended out of court in amicable fashion the various labor and civil litigation
cases that were open with the Brazilian player Neymar” read the statement.
“As such, a transactional agreement between the club and the player has been signed to end the legal cases
that was pending between the two parties.”
