Brazilian International superstar footballer, Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior has been ordered by a judge in a Spanish court to pay over a total of €6.7million to his former football club, Barcelona.
Reportedly, he claimed he was owed a hefty sum of 43.6m euros in loyalty bonuses by the club, which he left in August 2017.
However, Barcelona in a statement said they “welcomed” the judgement and would “continue to firmly defend its legitimate interests”.
Neymar also made a complaint to world governing body for football, FiFa after Barca refused to pay him following his 222m euros (£200m) move in 2017.
Following this victory, it is reported that Barcelona started filing legal claims against the Brazilian to get him to pay back £8m he received when he signed a new deal with them in 2016.
The contract dispute with the LaLiga champions continues.
