Neymar Touches Down In Barcelona Ahead Of Court Appearance Over Bonus Payment Row With Former Club

The Brazilian maintains that he is owed a further £10.5m in bonus payments from Barcelona

Neymar has touched down in Barcelona ahead of appearing in court to settle a bonus dispute with his former club.

The Brazilian was seen arriving at Barcelona airport on Thursday and was accompanied by his father.

Neymar is due to appear at the court in Barcelona’s City of Justice at 9.45am on Friday morning.

The 27-year-old maintains he is owed £10.5million in loyalty bonuses from Barcelona.

Neymar received £12.5m from Barcelona before he joined PSG in a world-record £200m move back in the summer of 2017.

The PSG forward now wants to be paid the rest of the £23m loyalty bonus that was inserted into his Barcelona contract.

The La Liga champions, however, are refusing to pay Neymar and believe he was only owed the full amount if he remained at the club until 2022.

They are asking to have the initial £10.5m payment reimbursed. 

A settlement agreement is not expected to be reached before the case begins on Friday.
