Attacked by Barca who demanded 10.2 million euros, the Brazilian international decided to launch a new legal offensive. And the PSG player is demanding a heck of a lot of money from his former employer.
FC Barcelona doesn’t necessarily need that. Struggling economically as a result of the health crisis, Barca is trying, by all means, to reduce the veil financially. Recently, the Blaugranas have extended the contracts of Gerard Piqué and Clément Lenglet, while lowering their emoluments over time. But all these efforts could be destroyed by an elder of the house, a certain Neymar (28 years)
On Wednesday, the Spanish press revealed that the residents of the camp Nou were demanding not less than 10.2 million euros from their former player. The cause of this request? The management of the Catalan club would have been wrong about the year 2015 by paying a gross salary (net salary – taxes) higher than what had been stipulated in the player’s contract. In concrete terms, the Catalan leaders would have overestimated the charges to be paid, and the current Player of Paris Saint-Germain would have received 10.2 million too much compared to his net salary…
Neymar keeps making the blows
Faced with the accusation of FC Barcelona, the Neymar clan decided to counter-attack. According to the information of Cadena Ser, the entourage of the Parisian number ten would claim the modest sum of 60 million euros from the Spanish club! Thus, the Brazilian international estimates that his former employer owes him 44 million euros in signing bonus, plus interest. At the same time, the Brazilian star appealed his conviction which required him to pay the sum of seven million euros to FC Barcelona.
From now on, it is in court that this umpteenth arms deal between the two parties will be resolved. And the trial promises to be tense, as Barca, entangled in financial problems, would then find themselves on the brink of economic asphyxiation if it were to lose this new legal battle. Let it be said, the hatchet between Neymar and FC Barcelona seems far from buried.
