Barcelona sue Neymar for €8.5million

Arthur Kennedy writes: Barcelona FC's Neymar tantrums

The Brazil forward swapped Barcelona for Paris earlier this summer in a world-record shattering £198m deal - a full £109m more than the previous record.

The Catalan giants have also passed the claim on to Fifa and the French Football Federation via the Spanish Football Federation to take what they see as "the appropriate legal effects".

"Paris Saint-Germain reiterates that, like Neymar Jr., it has always respected all applicable laws and rules in its dealings and, once again, regrets the attitude of FC Barcelona".

"The club demands the player return the already paid sum as he has not completed his contract", it said.

Barcelona has reacted bitterly to his move, first refusing to pay his father (who doubles as his agent) a €25 million (£23 million/$30 million) fee for brokering his original contract extension, then delaying his PSG debut by failing to send his worldwide transfer certificate promptly. The club also claims that PSG subsidise the amounts in the event that the player can not take responsibility.


Brazilian striker Neymar, who joined PSG earlier this month after the French club triggered his 222 million euros release clause, said he was surprised by the decision but warned he was not going to give in.

They also want Federation Internationale de Football Association to compel PSG to pay the money incase Neymar refuses to do so. Barcelona is also demanding 8.5 million Euros in damages as well as an additional 10 percent for the delayed payment. I began happy, spent four years happy and left happy.

Meanwhile, on weekend Neymar replied by hitting back at the Barcelona directors after scoring two goals during PSG's 6-1 win over Toulouse.

"I am upset with the Barcelona board", he told reporters.

"I spent four years there and was very happy. Barca deserve much better, and everyone knows this".
