No new Barca deal yet for Neymar

Neymar’s father reveals Barcelona are yet to offer the star striker a new contract to extend his stay at the Catalan club.

The forward’s father has denied reports this week claiming that Neymar had agreed terms with Barcelona on a new deal until 2021, before adding that talks would only take place at the end of the current season.

“We hope Neymar renews. Although he still has two more years on his contract and the fans can be calm during this period of time,” he told Ara.

“We’re relaxed about everything we’re doing in Barcelona and I believe the club are the same. We’ll talk with Bartomeu in May and draw up the road which Neymar and Barca can take together.

The 24-year-old has recently been linked with a potential move to bitter rivals Real Madrid, however Neymar Snr insists they have not been approached by the Bernabeu side, stating his son is happy with life at Camp Nou.

“We’ve had no contact ourselves [with Real Madrid]. And the club say they haven’t with us, either. It’s speculation, which has been coming since Neymar was 16. We have more experience now and we have to wait for May or June.

“Neymar is very happy at Barcelona, so people can relax.” he concluded.
