- Neymar: The night of partying in Barcelona before not appearing at the trial
- Trial: Neymar argues that he had no agreement with the PSG
An ultimatum from Neymar's father to Barcelona blew up the negotiations between the Brazilian soccer player and the Barça club on the eve of the trial for the millionaire renewal bonus signed before signing for the PSG. Neymar Santos , parent and agent of the player, transferred to the club his willingness to withdraw the claim for which he claims more than 26 million euros (the amount still pending payment of a total of 40) as long as Barça acquired a commitment for written -in a maximum and non-extendable term of one month and a half- of signing your child .
In that same written commitment, it required the incorporation of a clause whereby if the team chaired by Josep Maria Bartomeu did not exercise said option within the established term, he should automatically pay the amount he stopped paying to the player corresponding to the so-called signing bonus .
The club's lawyers considered the demand of the Neymar family unacceptable, broke the negotiations, which took place in judicial offices and, therefore, ended the trial last Friday in the Social Court number 15 of Barcelona. Throughout the hearing, Barça defended that he should not pay a single euro more to the player for having left for France. On the other hand, the lawyers of the footballer claimed the full amount they agreed upon.
During the previous days, Neymar , who moved to Barcelona , and his former club had established the first contacts, and the player's father put on the table a first proposal to avoid the trial. He offered a slight reduction to Barça on the amount claimed. He suggested that, as at this time his taxation in France is markedly lower than what he had in Spain (about 20 points of difference in personal income tax), he offered to deduct the difference. In total, between 5 and 6 million euros . At all times Neymar Santos spoke in the first person, referring to the fact that this amount corresponded personally to him.
The Barca club did not accept the rebate and stressed to the Neymar family that, if they continued along that line, their future signing for Barcelona would be practically impossible. After the replica of Barça , the Neymar family counterattacked demanding, always within the aforementioned period of a month and a half, a written commitment that would penalize Barça with the outstanding amount of the premium if it did not comply.
The conditions of incorporation should be those negotiated during the last summer and that did not crystallize due to the lack of agreement with the PSG for the transfer. That is, 30 million net per year plus a bonus of 13 that is currently perceived through Qatar as image rights. The Catalan team raised a swap for players and the French team claimed 300 million in cash or 180 if players such as Dembelé or Semedo joined the discipline , who did not want to be part of the operation.
Finally, the economic conditions, added to a premium of about 50 million demanded by the player's father and doubts about the operation to which Neymar was subjected on his right foot , frustrated the return to Spain of the player. The rupture of the agreement and the conclusion of the trial away for the moment to Neymar del Barça and leave the payment of the premium in the hands of Justice. The environment of the player is confident of winning the trial by emphasizing that some mistakes made during the hearing by the representatives of Barcelona will be decisive.
