PSG Respond To Barca Suing Neymar

Paris Saint-Germain Respond To FC Barcelona Suing Neymar

By Keegan Kruger - Aug 23, 2017 10:08 AM @KeeganKruger

Paris Saint-Germain have released a statement in response to FC Barcelona's decision to take legal action against Neymar for breach of contract.

Barca To Sue Neymar For Breach Of Contract

On Tuesday, the Blaugrana announced they would be suing the Brazilian international for failing to fulfil his side of a deal he signed in October 2016.

The Catalan giants are reportedly seeking €8.5 million (R132 million) in damages, and an additional 10% in interest.

In a statement released on Tuesday, PSG said they are "surprised" by the Spanish side's claims, and insisted that there was no wrongdoing in their purchase of Neymar.

"Paris Saint-Germain was surprised to learn of FC Barcelona's statement today announcing the start of legal proceedings in Spain against its former player Neymar Jr. and indicating that should Neymar Jr. fail to pay the monies claimed by his former club, Paris Saint-Germain will be held responsible for paying the outstanding sum," the statement on PSG's official website read.

"Paris Saint-Germain reiterates that, like Neymar Jr., it has always respected all applicable laws and rules in its dealings and, once again, regrets the attitude of FC Barcelona."

Pep: Someone Might Activate Messi's Release Clause

The 25-year-old departed the Catalan giants in a world record transfer worth €222 million (R3.4 billion) at the beginning of the window.

This is rediculous from Barca now. How can they accept the record breaking deal and then they come with this bulldoti of a claim. They should focus on strengthening the team and let Neymar be, otherwise they'd be playing second fiddle to Real again this season.

Lol Yoooooh Poor Barca, I don't believe this, after those billions they made by the boy, they still want more?Looool...How do you sue the player for not fulfilling contract while you are the one who receive and accept transfer offer for him and made billions? Nxa! This thing of Barca management can't accept that the super star Neymer Jr is gone and he is doing well at PSG.

@Khaya#26 Is it a crime when a players asked to be released when he's not happy in his team? There buy-out clause is for what if Neymar couldn't buy himself out of h3ll? Just accept the boy is gone and happy unlike your unhappy Messi stays for the sake of being babyseated even if he's not happy. Neymar did nothing wrong, your corrupt team is must just move on.

@Buccaneer.......to some you might sound irrelevant, but i tend to be tempted by this thought of yours and my reasons are 3. 1 Perez has never made his business to talk publicly about barCOW player situations. Him making such unusual statements about sis-messi condition in Spain is eye-catching. 2. Messi's refusal to sign the deal with barCOW for this long......when there is a smoke there is surely fire. 3. The Qatar VS Emirates tag of war, considering that Barca is on one side of the cold war, with PSG and the Real Madrid on the other side of the wall is really pointing to something boiling.

It must be noted that barCOW filed the case on the 11th August 2017, before Neymar's utterances about the club's board. This indicates very clear that Neymar's outburst emanates from the conduct of the club's board and president reflected through this bizaar lawsuit.
