The case is regarding the renewal bonus, where he was promised €40M, and initially got €14M. He’s suing Barça for the remaining €26M of what – at the time – was deemed a loyalty bonus.
Barça also have their part of the case, as they’d like the €14M back, as the €40M, per the Club, were offered if he fulfilled his contract. In 2017, he left to Paris for the €222M release clause, which is why Barça deem the contract unfulfilled. [@RogerTorello]
