Barcelona forward Neymar has revealed he has no intentions of leaving the Camp Nou anytime soon following months of speculation regarding his future.

The Brazilian has been a catalyst in the Catalonians' incredible campaign thus far as they strive towards a second successive treble winning season.

In an interview with Globo, as per the Daily Mail, he said: "I think the important thing in football is you always play alongside good players, and I think that the best are here.

"Therefore, I am very happy at Barcelona."

The 24-year-old considers his teammates at the Camp Nou as family.

"It is a team where I feel at home. My teammates give me tranquillity about everything. I still do not see myself leaving Barcelona."

Neymar has long been the subject of interest from the likes of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, both of whom monitoring his contract negotiations.

The Brazil international's current deal with Barca expires in 2018, though it's believed both parties want to extend his contract.

Alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, Neymar has helped form arguably the greatest attacking trio in the history of football.

And he's hailed the genius of who he claims are his 'best friends'.

"I think both [are my best friends], neither is closer than the other," he continued.

"I had more time with Messi, then Suarez came and created a very great relationship. We are always joking in training and outside as well. The affinity we have is great."

Of the 68 goals the three have scored between them in La Liga this season, Neymar has chipped in 20 and provided a further ten assists.

And it seems likely such phenomenal goalscoring will steer Barcelona to a second La Liga title in as many years, in which they currently sit eight and 12 points above Atletico and Real Madrid respectively.

A Copa del Rey final also looms, whilst the European champions breezed past Arsenal in the Champions League last 16 to reach the quarter-finals on Wednesday night, winning 5-1 on aggregate.
