Barcelona – Brazilian forward Neymar has actually filed a fresh lawsuit versus Barcelona to require some EUR3 million of unsettled earnings from his previous stint at the Spanish club, a judicial source stated on Friday.
The claim was submitted “a couple of weeks back”, the source informed AFP, confirming a report published in Spanish day-to-day newspaper El Mundo which said the Paris Saint-Germain player was suing the Catalan giants to collect “EUR3.2 million associating with his July 2017 salary”.
According to the newspaper, Neymar declares Barcelona kept part of his wage when he quit the club to join the French side in 2017.
Neymar’s shock transfer to PSG for a then-world record EUR222 million came less than a year after he signed a contract that would have kept him at the Spanish club until 2021.
The 27- year-old player argues Barcelona “did not pay him his last salary as a ‘reprisal’ for having claimed his extension reward”, El Mundo reported.
Neymar has actually already taken legal action against Barcelona to demand the paymenet of EUR644 million which he worked out with the club in 2016 in exchange for the extension of his contract till 2021.
A Barcelona court in September heard both sides in the conflict, however is yet to release its ruling.
Barcelona say they paid Neymar a very first tranche of EUR2075 million prior to he left for PSG, but did not pay him the rest.
The gamer then sued to gather the rest of the amount. Barcelona counter-sued to demand that Neymar return the EUR2075 m he had actually currently been paid.
