Barcelona ‘are suing former star Neymar for £9m after they overpaid him during his time at the Nou Camp’

    Spanish giants, Barcelona are reportedly suing Neymar for £9m after overpaying the Brazilian forward during his first two years at the Nou Camp in a tax miscalculation. 

    The world’s most expensive player currently plays for Paris Saint-Germain following his £200m transfer in 2017. He spent four seasons and scored 101 goals in 185 games for Barcelona. 

    Neymar has been cut up in legal battles with Barca in the past, claiming previously that the club owed him a total of £38m (€43m) in unpaid bonuses. 

    After losing the case, the 28-year-old was forced to pay his former club £5.9m (€6.7m) and now Barca are making another attempt to reclaim more money. 

    According to El Mundo, Barcelona discovered that they paid Neymar excessively and are now looking to claim back the difference after a tax inspection covering the 2015 financial period. 

    The report said the Tax Agency has notified Barca that if the situation is not solved, the £9m (€10.2m) would be seen as a ‘donation’ from the club to Neymar.
