A Spanish court has ordered Paris St-Germain forward Neymar to pay £6.1m to former club Barcelona.
Neymar claimed he was owed 43.6m euros in loyalty bonuses by Barcelona, who he left in August 2017.
A judge ruled in favour of the Catalan club but 28-year-old Neymar, who filed the lawsuit shortly after the transfer, can appeal against the decision.
Barcelona said they “welcomed” the judgement and would “continue to firmly defend its legitimate interests”.
Neymar also made a complaint to world governing body FIFA after Barcelona refused to pay him following his 222m euros (£200m) move in 2017.
As well as not paying Neymar, Barcelona started legal proceedings against him to pay back £8m he received when he signed a new deal with them in 2016.
FIFA did not take any action, saying it would leave the case to the courts.
During his time at Barcelona Neymar won the treble (LaLiga, Champions League and Copa del Rey) under Luiz Enrique.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
