Barcelona files lawsuit against Neymar for breach of contract

If you thought Neymar wouldn't have to deal with Barcelona's execs anymore, you were indeed mistaken.

The Catalan club has filed a lawsuit against the Brazilian player for breaking the contract that Neymar had recently extended with Los Blaugranas. According to the Spanish club, Neymar owes them the payment of an €8.5M loyalty clause, while adding 10% of that fee in damages.

This lawsuit was presented by Barca execs on August 11, according to a statement published by the club on their website.

Neymar's relationship with Barcelona's execs ended in bitter terms after forcing his exit to Ligue 1. Furthermore, his recent comments about members of Los Blaugranas' board haven't helped to calm the situation.

Barcelona's actions could also mean that the club will not be interested in any deals involving PSG's players to take Neymar's place with the club, following reports about Los Blaugranas bidding to sign Julian Draxler or Angel Di María.
