Barcelona ace Neymar's future has been the subject of speculation for some time now.

Earlier this week it was claimed that there were three clubs who were willing to fork out the €200 million in order to activate the release clause in his contract and lure him away from the Nou Camp.

Indeed, his agent Wagner Ribiero said this week: "There are three big clubs in the world that want to sign Neymar and pay a clause of €200m to Barcelona.

"I cannot say more than this because it is sensitive. I can only guarantee that Neymar is happy at Barcelona."

Now respected Spanish source ABC claim to have learned the identity of the clubs interested in the 24-year-old, and they're pretty much the three richest clubs in the world.

ABC say that Real Madrid would love to spirit him away from the Nou Camp, and that his advisors believe it would be the best move for him. The reigning European champions are believed to be preparing a contract offer worth €15 million-per-season over six years plus bonuses.

PSG's offer is even bigger than that; it's said to stand at an incredible €18.5 million which could eventually become €28 million euros if Neymar hits certain performance-related targets. Manchester United's overall package comes in between Madrid and PSG at €17 million over five seasons.

As it stands though, there's little indication that Neymar himself is agitating for a move away from Barcelona. He has of course been incredibly successful as part of the club's MSN attacking trio alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, and has helped the club win five major trophies in the last two seasons alone.

Of course, it does Neymar no harm to have his agent link him with other clubs when he has two years to run on his deal at Barcelona when the Catalan club is likely to begin contract extension talks sooner rather than later. 

The former Santos star is currently away on holiday following Brazil's surprise early exit from the Copa Centenario.

Do you think there's a chance that Neymar could leave Barcelona?
