It is understood UEFA is yet to respond to the letter from Neymar’s camp.

The 25-year-old left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in August for a world-record fee of €222million, less than a year after signing a new five-year contract at Camp Nou.

The player’s entourage insists he is owed a €26m loyalty bonus stipulated in that contract extension and FIFA confirmed in August that they are investigating an official complaint from the former Santos star against Barca.

The Liga side have refused to pay it on the grounds that the forward breached the terms of his deal by holding talks with PSG over a move to France.
