Neymar set to sue Barcelona over unpaid bonus

Brazilian and PSG Forward Neymar is to file a case against his former club Barcelona,  over a 26m euros (£23.97m) unpaid loyalty bonus included in the contract he signed last November.

The Catalan giants had earlier threatened to sue Neymar for 8.5m euros (£7.83m), as they want him to return the bonus paid when he signed the five-year extension,the claim has been received by FIFA.

The 25-year-old’s management group N & N Consultoria said in a statement that the player had fulfilled the terms of the deal

PSG broke the world transfer record earlier this month by triggering the 222m euros (£200m) buyout clause in Neymar’s contract.

The 25-year-old won two La Liga titles, three Copas del Rey and the 2015 Champions League during his four years with Barcelona.

Meanwhile, Barcelona defender Gerard Pique believes forward Lionel Messi will not leave the club despite delaying signing a new contract.

The five-time world player of the year and Barca’s all-time leading goalscorer agreed a new four-year deal on 5 July, but has not yet put pen to paper.
