Barça and Neymar end litigation amicably

The Club and the player have signed a transactional agreement to end the legal cases between the two parties
FC Barcelona have announced an out of court settlement of the various labour and civil litigation cases with Brazilian player Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior

“As such, a transactional agreement between the Club and the player has been signed to end the legal cases that were pending between the two parties: three claims related to labour and a civil case”, the club said in a statement released on Monday  their official website:

Neymar was a Barça player between the seasons 2013/14 until 2016/17. Subsequently, he signed for Paris Saint-Germain, the club where he currently plays.

What really happened?

The Brazil international forward first butted heads with La Liga heavyweights on the back of his record-breaking €222 million (£200m/$262m) transfer to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2017.

The company that manages Neymar’s career claimed in the wake of the switch that the South American was owed a loyalty bonus relating to a contract extension that was signed in 2016.

It was suggested by the Brazil international that he and his father were entitled to €43.6m (£39m/$51m) as part of that agreement.

Barca sued Neymar for breach of contract as things threatened to get ugly.

A Catalan court ruled in Barcelona’s favour back in June 2020, with Neymar ordered to pay his former club €6.7m (£6m/$8m) after losing his case.

All cases are now closed, with club and player able to divert their full attention to matters on the field ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.
