BARCELONA (Reuters) - Barcelona are suing Neymar for 8.5 million euros for alleged breach of contract and demanding he return the loyalty bonus paid after he renewed his deal in October, less than a year before he signed for Paris St. Germain, the club said Tuesday.

The Catalans are asking for an additional 10 percent payment due to a delay in their demands being met, after presenting the Brazilian striker with them on Aug. 11.

"Barcelona have taken these actions in defense of their interests, after Neymar's contract was rescinded just a few months after he signed on until 2021," a club statement said.
