Neymar ordered to pay Barcelona £6m in court settlement after he demanded the club pay him £39m bonus

PSG superstar, Neymar has lost his case against Barcelona in which he claimed €43.6 million from the club. The player must now pay €6.7 million to Barcelona.

Recall that,Neymar joined  Barcelona from Brazilian side Santos in 2013, before joining PSG four years later in a mouthwatering deal.

The former Barcelona player, Neymar, 28, took Barcelona to court in a bid to get money he believed Barca owed him after signing for the Spanish club in 2013 but unfortunately  Neymar has been ordered to pay Barcelona .

Barcelona have now reacted to the ruling saying the club remains prepared if Neymar appeals the ruling.

In a statement, a Barcelona spokesperson 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.

"The ruling has fully dismissed the player’s claim for payment of 43.6 million euros.
"[It has also] accepted a large part of the defence presented by FC Barcelona, as a result of which the player must return 6.7 million euros to the club.

"Since the player’s representative is entitled to appeal this decision, the club shall continue to fervently defend its legitimate interests."
