FC Barcelona still has not digested. And intends to recover even more money. In a statement, the Catalans announced on Tuesday that they filed a complaint on 11 August before the Labor Court of Barcelona to demand money from Neymar. The Catalans, who still have the cross of the throat the transfer from the Brazilian to the PSG, simply request the restitution of a portion of a premium touched at the last extension by the Brazilian striker as well as 8.5 million euros, Euros of damage and an additional 10% for delay. The reason ? Non-compliance with contract.
“The club shall claim from the player the portion already paid corresponding to his contract extension bonus due to non-compliance with the contract, 8.5 million euros in damages and 10% Interest “delay, Barça said in a statement. FC Barcelona said the complaint was also forwarded by the club to the Spanish Federation (RFEF), to be forwarded to the French Federation (FFF) and FIFA. And to top it off, the Blaugrana claim that the PSG pays these sums if the player is not able to do so.
Before, there had been the payment of the premium of 26 million
If the Catalan club has already touched the 222 million euros of the termination clause, it obviously does not want to turn the page. This story even proves that he will do everything in his power to try to recover what he can scratch in this story. This is not the first time that FC Barcelona is struggling financially in this soap opera Neymar. Before the transfer of the Brazilian crack, Barça had already blocked the payment of a premium of 26 million euros that he owed to Neymar. On 4 August, the Barcelona club finally recovered this sum, considering that the player had not complied with the terms of his contract.
Two days after seeing Neymar openly criticize the direction of his former club, the Barca replicates again. And on the judicial ground this time. The club initiated these actions “in defense of its interests” explained the Blaugrana in the release. “This defense will be exercised by always following the procedures established before the competent authorities and without entering at any time into dialectical debates with the player,” assured Barça.
