Man Utd target to sign new Barcelona deal

Neymar was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in the summer. Neymar’s father even claimed talks were held between the two club.

But the 23-year-old insists he is keen to stay with the Catalan giants.

“The renewal is underway. I have many years of contract here and I’ll sign, calm,” he told beIN Sports. “The fans have to be calm.”

“We are currently working on Neymar’s contract extension and I don’t think there will be any type of problem,” Barcelona’s director of football Roberto Fernandez told Marca newspaper.

“I have no doubt in my mind that Neymar will spend the rest of his life at Barcelona. We will reach an agreement with him sooner or later, this season if possible.”
