Barcelona suing Neymar for $10m signing bonus

Lionel Messi Manchester City Barcelona Transfer news

Paris Saint-Germain released a statement Tuesday saying they are "surprised" that Barcelona have taken legal action against Neymar for breach of contract.

The Catalan club said on Tuesday they believe they are owed money that Neymar received as part of a renewal bonus when he signed a new contract a year ago, in addition to €8.5m in damages plus interest.

Barcelona and Neymar have been involved in a off-the-field battle since the player joined PSG on 3 August.

The news comes hot on the heels of Neymar's criticism of the current Barcelona board, who are also not proving to be too popular with the club's fans, following Neymar's departure and the struggle to adequately replace him.

"Paris Saint-Germain reiterates that, like Neymar Jr, it has always respected all applicable laws and rules in its dealings and, once again, regrets the attitude of FC Barcelona". However, less than a year later the player chose to leave Barcelona by paying his release clause to move to the Ligue 1 side.

Neymar has made an excellent start to life in France, marking his debut with a goal and an assist against Guingamp and then scoring twice, and assisting another two, during the 6-2 home win over Toulouse on Sunday evening. "The club also requests that PSG subsidise the amounts in the event that the player can not take responsibility".

It was sent to the Spanish football federation on August 11 with a wish for it to be forwarded to the French federation and FIFA.

The club want that initial payment returned plus €8.5m in damages. "I have a lot of friends there, I hope things get better for Barca and that they go back to being a team that can compete".

"I had four very happy years there, but Barca deserve much better".
