Neymar is still waiting for a complaint over an unpaid bonus to be resolved by FIFA

FIFA is still considering Neymar`s complaint over an unpaid bonus while he was a Barcelona player.

Sky Sports News reported last August that Barcelona were refusing to pay a £23m bonus to Neymar`s father following a contract renewal last year.

The Brazil international left the Catalan club at the end of the summer transfer window and signed for Paris Saint-Germain in a world record £198m deal.

A FIFA spokesperson told Sky Sports News: The case is still pending.

At the time of the complaint, Sky Sports News was told Neymar felt very bad over the withheld payment.

Barcelona spokesman Josep Vives previously said: The club will not pay the bonus to Neymar`s father.

There were three conditions: the player must not negotiate his departure from the club during the month before the bonus became payable, he must demonstrate his desire to fulfil his contract, and that we would not pay out the bonus before September 1, to ensure the transfer window was closed.

Now that we know that none of these three conditions were met, we will not honour that bonus.
