Brazil forward and Paris St Germain’s Neymar ordered to pay his former Spanish football club Barcelona 6.7 million euros after losing a court case in relation to an unpaid signing bonus.

Neymar signed for PSG from Barcelona in 2017 for a world record fee of 222 million Euros.

He claimed that he and his father, who represents him, were owed 43.6m (£39m) due to an unpaid loyalty bonus when he extended his contract in October 2016 and sued Barcelona.

Barcelona sued back claiming breach of contract and a city court has ruled in favour of the club.

Barcelona club in its statement said, “FC Barcelona expresses its satisfaction with the verdict announced today by Social Court 15 in Barcelona in relation to the lawsuit involving FC Barcelona and the player Neymar Jr regarding the amount of the signing bonus in the final renewal of the player’s contract,”
