Neymar expected to sign new Barcelona contract

Published 5 Comments

Barcelona have prepared a contract renewal for Neymar, as per Guillem Balague, which, after Saturday morning’s reports, will break the hearts of any super optimistic Manchester United supporters.

Neymar still has three years remaining on his current deal but, such were his performances for the club during last season’s memorable treble campaign, the Brazilian would appear set to be rewarded for his exploits.

The 23-year-old found the net 39 times in 51 appearances during his second season at the Camp Nou as Barcelona laid waste to all in front of them, and it seems he is not far from extending his stay.

There has, however, been speculation about his future as a Barcelona player. It was claimed by The Sun that Manchester United have had ‘discreet’ talks to express their interest in recruiting Neymar before the close of the summer transfer window.

Fair play to Ed Woodward for this pretty ballsy approach, but the Manchester United negotiator should focus on bringing more realistic targets to Old Trafford in the next couple of weeks, rather than wasting his time pursuing Neymar.

Barcelona, meanwhile, will begin their La Liga defence with a trip to the San Mames to face Athletic Club on Sunday having been overcome by the Bilbao outfit in their recent Spanish Super Cup clash.

Neymar, however, will not play in this encounter having been unavailable with a bout of mumps which had prevented him from training until late this week.
