Barcelona To Sue Neymar
Barcelona are to sue former player Neymar for £7.8m over an alleged breach of contract in the wake of his £198m move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The amount relates to a loyalty bonus Neymar received after signing a contract extension in October 2016.
Neymar joined PSG on a five-year contract on August 4 following a protracted transfer saga.
The Brazil international’s move looked set to be held up after La Liga initially refused to accept the funds for the buyout clause.
The deal finally went through and the 25-year-old scored on his league debut in the 3-0 win at Guincamp.
He also scored twice in the 6-2 victory over Toulouse that leaves PSG top of Ligue 1 on goal but the fallout from the transfer looks set to rumble on.
In a further twist, Neymar is also considering a formal complaint to FIFA against his former club Barcelona over an unpaid loyalty bonus, Sky sources understand.
