Neymar confirms intention to sign new Barcelona contract and ends Man United transfer hopes

Brazilian star Neymar has confirmed he is set to sign a new Barcelona contract, in effect ending Man United’s hopeful advances to sign the attacker according to the Daily Mirror.

The 23-year-old enjoyed a superb campaign in 2014/15, netting 39 goals in all competitions, and is now part of a pivotal three pronged attack along with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez and isn’t a player Nou Camp boss Luis Enrique would consider selling.

Nonetheless there has been constant speculation of interest from Man United though one imagines such talk only serves to help Neymar secure as good a contract offer as possible, and as such the former Santos man hasn’t moved to quash such transfer talk.

That is until now, with Neymar making it clear he is not planning to leave Barcelona any time soon, stating;

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