Football News

In arguably the most unsurprising football news of 2015, Barcelona superstar Neymar has said he would be open to a new contract at the Camp Nou.

The Brazilian was the subject of interest from Manchester United over the summer, with the Red Devils reportedly ready to fork out £240 million for his services.

The Camp Nou outfit have been pressing for a new deal since talks of a move to Old Trafford surfaced and now it seems both parties are on the same wavelength.

The 23-year-old told Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo: "Of course I want to renew, but we'll talk. 

I'm very happy to be at Barcelona. I have three more years and those items my father takes care of."


It would appear Neymar is the heir-in-waiting at Barcelona. With Lionel Messi undeniably the top dog, the Brazilian is patiently biding his time until the moment comes to emerge from the shadow of the mercurial Argentine.

At 28, Messi still has a long time to go before his powers begin to diminish. However, when that does happen, Neymar will be in the prime of his career and ready to take the baton.

Although, the next few months will give Blaugrana fans an indication of the Brazilian's ability to be the focal point of their team.

Lionel Messi is currently recovering from a knee injury sustained in the win over Las Palmas and faces a battle to be fit for the El Clasico tie against Real Madrid on November 22.

But if performances against Bayer Leverkusen and Sevilla are anything to go by, it could be a tough month for the Catalan club.

Is Neymar good enough to fill the void left by Lionel Messi? Have your say in the comments section below!
