The Catalan club’s summer efforts to bring the Brazilian back to the Nou Camp failed as the transfer deadline passed on Monday evening.
Axar.az reports citing Diario AS that the 27-year-old will come head-to-head with his former employers in a Barcelona court at 10 am on 27 September, just three weeks on from the club’s attempt to sign him.
Neymar is suing Barca for €26 million and the La Liga giants are suing the player for €75 million.
The subject of the dispute is a €40 million bonus Neymar was due to receive after penning a new deal with the club just months before sealing his world record €222 million move to PSG in August 2017.
The Brazil international was handed €14 million upfront but Barca have withheld the remaining €26 million since he decided to leave the club.
They accuse the player of failing to honor his contract, while Neymar believes he’s entitled to the full bonus payment plus interest of 10 percent.
