After overpaying the Brazilian forward during his first two years at the Nou Camp in a tax miscalculation, Spanish giants Barcelona are supposedly suing Neymar for £9 m.
Following his £200m move in 2017, the world’s most valuable player actually plays for Paris Saint-Germain. He spent four seasons with Barcelona and scored 101 goals in 185 matches.
In legal disputes with Barca in the past, Neymar has been cut up, alleging recently that the club owed him a sum of £ 38 m (€43 m) in unpaid bonuses.
The 28-year-old was forced to pay his former club £5.9 m (€6.7 m) after losing the case, and now Barca is making another attempt to recover more cash.
According to El Mundo, after a tax inspection covering the 2015 financial year, Barcelona discovered that they paid Neymar unfairly and are now trying to recover the difference.
The report claimed that Barca was told by the Tax Office that if the issue is not resolved, the £ 9 m (EUR 10.2 m) will be seen as a ‘gift’ from the club to Neymar.
