Barcelona blocks Ney­mar’s bonus

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Barcelona has blocked pay­ment of a US$31mn bonus for star attacker Ney­mar as spec­u­la­tion mounts that he will move to Paris Saint-Ger­main (PSG), a source at the club said on Tues­day. The Brazil­ian foot­ball star, who is due to come back for train­ing on Wed­nes­day morn­ing, is at the cen­tre of an ap­par­ent tug of war be­tween the two Euro­pean gi­ants in what would be the most ex­pen­sive trans­fer fee in foot­ball his­tory. Spec­u­la­tion is mount­ing that the 25 year old could quit Barcelona for PSG for a world-record US$262mn. "Th­ese US$31mn has been placed with a no­tary pend­ing to see if the player con­tin­ues," the source, who re­fused to be named, told AFP.

The re­newal bonus was agreed on a year ago when Ney­mar ex­tended his con­tract with Barcelona un­til 2021, and was due to be paid to the player after he com­pleted a year.
