Paris St-Germain have hit back at Barcelona following the latter’s lawsuit threats against Neymar on Tuesday. The Catalans are suing the Brazilian for 8.5m euros (£7.8m) for breach of contract in relation to his world record £200m move to the French side after buying out his contract. PSG have however requested that Barcelona stop being so salty about the whole Neymar thing.
“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 to pay the outstanding sum.
“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.” a PSG statement read on its website
