FC Barcelona Neymar reach agreement – See Outcome
FC Barcelona Neymar reach: FC Barcelona and Neymar have reached an amicable agreement to resolve their long-running contract dispute with the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward.
The Brazilian international claimed the Spanish La Liga giants owed him 43.6 million euros (51.3 million dollars) in unpaid bonuses.
After signing a new five-year contract with the Catalan club in 2016, Neymar insisted he was entitled to the massive sum as a loyalty bonus.
In June 2020, a judge ruled in favour of Barcelona, ordering Neymar to pay his former employers 6.7 million euros.
On Monday, Barca announced that the case had been closed.

In August 2017, Neymar joined PSG for a world-record fee of 222 million euros.
