Celebrity News: The club transfers the complaint about breach of contract to the Federation
Neymar already shines in Paris but his departure still brings queue in the offices of FC Barcelona. The club announced through a statement that it sent the Spanish Federation the lawsuit it filed last August 11 against the player in the Social Court of Barcelona: the entity claims that the Brazilian return the payment corresponding to his renewal premium for breach of contract. From the club consider that after the unilateral rescission of Neymar, Barca is exempted from the total payment of the premium, about 26 million euros.
Barcelona, in addition, asks Neymar 8.5 million euros for damages, plus 10% of the total for arrears. In the same communiqué, in which it asks the Federation to transfer the claim to the French federation and FIFA, Barcelona demands that the PSG assume the payments subsidiarily in the event that Neymar can not assume them.
Relations between the board and Neymar seem to have broken as easily as their contractual link broke. The Brazilian assured after the match against Toulouse: “They [the board] are not people who have to be there. Barca deserves much more and everyone knows it. ”
Despite the player’s words, Barcelona does not intend to enter into a conflict: “We will not enter, in any case, dialectic disputes with Neymar”, specify from the club. Barcelona justified their decision by the abrupt departure of the striker, having signed a few months before their contract extension: “FC Barcelona has pushed these actions in defense of their interests, after a unilateral termination of the contract urged by Neymar Jr, a few months after the signature of its renewal until the year 2021. This defense will be exercised always following the established procedures before the competent organisms “.
