Barcelona and Neymar sign agreement over contract dispute
Neymar and Barcelona have signed an agreement to end legal proceedings over the PSG forward's claims he was owed €43.6million in unpaid bonuses.
Barcelona and Neymar have reached an amicable agreement to end their long-running dispute over the Paris Saint-Germain forward's contract.
The Brazil international had claimed he was owed €43.6million in unpaid bonuses by LaLiga giants Barça.
Neymar insisted he was due the huge sum as a loyalty bonus, having signed a new five-year contract with the Catalan club in 2016.
A judge ruled in Barca's favour in June 2020, ordering Neymar to pay his former employers €6.7m. Barça on Monday revealed the case is now closed.
Barcelona and Neymar dispute "closed amicably"
A club statement said: "FC Barcelona announces that it has extrajudicially and closed amicably different labour and civil litigations that had opened with the Brazilian player Neymar da Silva Santos Junior.
"Thus, the club and the player have signed a transactional agreement to end legal proceedings that were pending between both parties: three claims in the labour jurisdiction and one civil proceeding."
Neymar joined PSG for a world record fee of €222m in August 2017.
