Neymar enjoys a night out in Barcelona before not showing up for his trial

Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar posted a photo on Instagram alongside his friends in Barcelona on Thursday night, just hours before the Brazilian had to go to Barcelona’s Social Court on Friday for his trial against FC Barcelona.

The 27-year-old has to testify in the trial against Barcelona for a bonus payment that, according to Neymar, he is owed after signing his final contract with the club.

Neymar enjoyed himself in Barcelona on Thursday night, joining up with Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo and former Espanyol forward Leo Baptistao, who now plays in China for Wuhan Zall.

The forward was also accompanied in Barcelona by his friends Gabriel Gubela and Amancio.

A tweet from the journalist Carles Escolan explains that a pre-trial agreement may have been reached.

“Neymar, who had dinner with Arthur yesterday and stayed up until 6 in the morning, has not appeared, right now, at the courts,” he tweeted.

“Neither has his father. Barcelona and the player’s representatives are gathered at the illustrious bar in Barcelona. Everything points to a pre-trial agreement.”
