Barcelona have admitted that mega-money Man United target Neymar is in discussions over a new contract, reports the Daily Express.
The brilliant Brazilian had been rumoured to be a blockbuster target for the Red Devils, with an eye-watering £240m move mooted.
The Blaugrana signed the forward in a controversial deal from his boyhood side, Santos, two years ago and the 23-year old was part of the stunning treble winning team under manager Luis Enrique last term.
New technical director at the Nou Camp Roberto Fernandez has revealed ‘everything that the player and his people convey, is that they want continuation.’
Despite the links to Neymar, the Red Devils ultimately moved for Monaco starlet Anthony Martial in a record breaking £36.6m deal that shocked fans and pundits alike.
The Selecao samba star has publicly distanced himself with a Premier League switch, insisting he is ‘happy’ in Spain.
‘The people of Barca can be calm’, said the 23-year old, who has formed a formidable partnership with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez at the club.
