Barcelona ‘certain’ over Neymar contract renewal

The Brazilian has been linked with Manchester United and Manchester City but the Spanish champions are confident that the forward will extend his stay
Barcelona’s vice president Carles Vilarrubi is “certain” that Neymar will sign a new contract with the club.

Earlier this month, the Brazilian’s father revealed that Manchester United had made a €190 million (£144m) bid for the forward last summer, while reports claim that the club, along with Manchester City will try again at the end of the season.

Neymar’s current deal expires in 2018 but Barcelona are convinced the 24-year-old will extend his contract.

"He is committed to the team and is happy with his team-mates. The club gives him a lot of happiness."
