Neymar, Barcelona mend fences over legal disputes
Club and player sign agreement to end legal cases between 2 parties
Barcelona and their former player Neymar signed a transactional agreement Monday to end the legal cases between the two parties.
The club ended litigation amicably with the Brazilian superstar, who now plays as a forward for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), according to Barcelona’s official website.
After playing for Barcelona since 2013, Neymar signed with PSG in 2017 for a record fee of €222 million ($262 million).
Neymar, 29, claimed that his contract renewal with Barcelona in 2016 had a bonus payment and the club did not fully pay the amount in question.
Barcelona refused to make the payment and started legal proceedings against him, alleging non-compliance with the contract.
Currently holding the record for the most expensive transfer in football history, Neymar has 87 goals and 52 assists in 116 games for PSG.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
