Paris - FIFA said on Thursday it was investigating Brazilian
superstar Neymar's complaint over an unpaid loyalty bonus from Barcelona in the
increasingly bitter feud with his former club since his move to Paris
A FIFA spokesperson said the complaint was "pending and
being investigated" and he could not comment any further.
Barcelona are refusing to pay a €26-million bonus to Neymar
for signing a five-year contract renewal last year.
In a separate issue, the Catalan giants are seeking €8.5
million in compensation from Neymar for breach of contract following his world
record €222-million move to PSG in August.
Neymar's family hit back on Tuesday with their
representatives expressing their "surprise" at Barcelona's
compensation claim "given that the player fully respected the contract
valid at the time".
