Barcelona and Neymar have finally ended their legal dispute after the Catalan club announced they have reached to an amicable out-of-court agreement with PSG star.

The case goes back to when

Neymar

said the club owe him an unpaid bonus due to a contract he signed in October 2016, before his €222m record transfer to

Paris Saint-Germain

.

Neymar requested €46.3 million from the Catalan club, and they asked the Brazilian to pay €16.7 million for breach of contract.

A court in Catalonia ordered Neymar to pay his former club €6.7m after losing his case, but the Brazil international appealed and launched a new case against his former club.

However, this long-running process was concluded in a way that saw both parties remain friendly.

The Blaugrana said in a statement on the club's

official website

:<em>

 "FC Barcelona announce that it has ended out of court in amicable fashion the various labor and civil litigation cases that were open with the Brazilian player Neymar," read the statement.

"As such, a transactional agreement between the club and the player has been signed to end the legal cases that were pending between the two parties."
