Neymar attended a well-known nightclub in Barcelona but did not go to the courts for his trial against his former club, say Diario AS.
The Brazilian was pictured at the city’s airport on Thursday but he did not even appear in the court of the Ciutat de la Justícia in the Catalan capital.
He then published a photo of himself on his Instagram account along with two of his friends and two current footballers – Arthur Melo and Leo Baptistao.
Neymar has subsequently returned to the airport to go back to Paris ahead of the weekend round of action, while his lawyers continue to be locked in negotiations with those of Barcelona.
It is a somewhat surreal series of events related to Neymar’s time at the Camp Nou, while the Blaugrana were heavily linked with his signing this summer – a move that never came to fruition.
Neymar joined Barca from Santos in 2013 and left for Paris Saint-Germain in a world record €222m deal four years later – and he remains in Ligue 1.
