The Neymar Jr. and FC Barcelona legal battle appear with both parties in two separate economic fights, and it seems they could be concluding soon.
El Mundo (via Mundo Deportivo) reports that the lawyers for both sides have reached an agreement that would forgive the Brazil international €16.7 million if he stops claiming the €47.15-million he is asking for and waives the €3.5 million from the settlement.
The other trial, which is over the €3.5 million Neymar demanded from the settlement entity after leaving in 2017, has been suspended by mutual agreement pending an economic arrangement. Neymar argues that Barcelona withheld the payment as a “retaliation” against him for having gone to France and acting in “bad faith.”
Also, both parties are disputing the renewal premium claimed by Neymar, which would also be settled if they reach an agreement. The Social Court number 15 of Barcelona ruled that the PSG forward must return €6.7-million to the Spanish club and rejected his claim to collect the €43.65-million Neymar claims Barcelona owed him when he left.
It seems that any news regarding Neymar and Barcelona will be over their economic court disputes rather than the transfer saga.
