Barcelona are reportedly planning to sue their former player Neymar for 7.8 million pounds over an alleged breach of contract in the wake of his 198 million pounds move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The amount is understood to relate to a loyalty bonus Neymar received after signing a contract extension in October 2016.

In a statement read by SkySports, the La Liga giants have decided to take Neymar to the courts.

“Barcelona decided to take these actions in defence of their interests, after a unilateral termination of contract urged by Neymar Jr a few months after signing the renewal until the end of the year 2021,” a statement read.

Neymar joined PSG on a five-year contract on August 4 following a protracted transfer saga and the deal was finally completed three weeks ago.
