Barcelona sues Neymar for US$10m over contract breach
    2017-August-24  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

BARCELONA is seeking at least 8.5 million euros (US$10 million) from Neymar for breach of contract, the club said Tuesday as the bitter fallout rumbles on from his world-record 222-million euro move to Paris Saint-Germain.

“In this lawsuit, the club demands the amount already paid as a bonus for the renewal of his contract for breach of contract, 8.5 million euros in damages, and an additional 10 percent in interests,” Barcelona said in a statement.

Neymar signed a new five-year deal with Barcelona in 2016, but the Catalans were powerless to stop his move to PSG just a year later as the French side met the buyout clause in his contract.

Barcelona added the lawsuit was lodged against Neymar on Aug. 11 with Barcelona’s employment court, eight days after his stunning move to Ligue 1.

The Catalan giant has also passed the claim onto FIFA and the French Football Federation via the Spanish Football Federation to take what it sees as “the appropriate legal effects.”

Moreover, Barcelona urged PSG to pay the amount it is seeking if Neymar — who is reported to earn 30 million euros after tax for the next five years in Paris — isn’t able to meet its demands.

The club’s latest move comes two days after Neymar fiercely criticized Barcelona’s under-fire board after scoring twice in a stunning home debut as PSG beat Toulouse 6-2 Sunday.

“There are people in charge that shouldn’t be there,” Neymar told reporters. “Barca deserves much more and everyone knows that.”

Elsewhere, Croatian international striker Nikola Kalinic has completed a move to AC Milan from Fiorentina, both clubs announced Tuesday.

The 29-year-old joins Milan on a season-long loan in a deal that will eventually become permanent and has signed a contract with the club until 2021.
