Defending champions of the Spanish Copa del Rey Barcelona has reached an out-of-court agreement with their former player Neymar Jnr to end a legal dispute in an “amicable fashion” The 29-year-old Brazilian forward claimed Barcelona refused to pay him £37.2m in owed loyalty bonuses after his £200m move to French Ligue 1 side Paris St-Germain in 2017.

Barcelona then started legal proceedings to get him to pay back the £8m he received when he signed a new deal in 2016. Last year June a Spanish court ordered the Brazilian to pay the Spanish champions £6.1m. It was however reported that he had appealed against the decision and launched a new case, which is now void.
The La Liga side said a statement: “FC Barcelona announce that it has ended out of court in amicable fashion the various labour and civil litigation cases that were open with the Brazilian player Neymar.” “As such, a transactional agreement between the club and the player has been signed to end the legal cases that were pending between the two parties.”
Neymar who recently joined the Puma shoe brand after he had an issue with Nike has not said anything in respect to that regard but is believe he is cool with the idea.
