Neymar faces litigation

After a summer of courtship, with Barcelona wooing Neymar to come back, the Brazilian star and his former club have finally agreed a date -- but in court rather than on the pitch.

Both sides will meet at a court in the Barcelona suburbs today for a multi-million-euro legal battle over a contract dispute.

Barca initially sued Neymar for breach of contract after his shock transfer to PSG in 2017, less than a year after signing a new five-year deal with the Catalan giants.

Barcelona are demanding 8.5 million euros in damages plus interest, and have refused to pay Neymar the 26 million euros which were part of his contract renewal bonus signed in 2016.
