CAIRO – 22 August 2017: FC Barcelona sued their former winger Neymar FIFA on August 22. They also brought a case against him in the Spanish court on August 11.
FC Barcelona posted a statement on their official website on Tuesday saying, “FC Barcelona has sent a claim made against Neymar for breach of contract to the RFEF, and for it to be passed on to the French Football Federation [FFF] and FIFA.”
"In the demand, the club claims back money paid as part of a renewal bonus based on the fact he has not fulfilled his contract; €8.5m in damages, and an additional 10 percent in interest. The club also claims that PSG subsidies the amounts in the event that the player cannot take responsibility.
"FC Barcelona have taken these steps in order to defend their own interests after Neymar rescinded his contract with the club just a few months after signing a renewal until 2021,” citing from ESPN.
Neymar left Barcelona to join Paris Saint Germain on August 11 after the French club, owned by Qatari businessman Nasser Al-Khelaifi, paid his buy-out clause of €222 million ($261 million).
