Iniesta confident Neymar will stay

Barcelona star Andres Iniesta believes teammate Neymar will stay at Camp Nou despite rumours of interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.

United are expected to boost their squad after appointing Jose Mourinho as manager following a disappointing campaign in the Premier League under Louis Van Gaal, while PSG will be looking to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he leaves the club at the end of his contract which expires later this month.

Neymar has scored 85 goals in 141 games across all competitions for Barca, since joining the club from Santos in 2013 and Iniesta feels the 24-year-old would want to continue playing for the Catalan giants.

“I’ll bet Neymar stays,” Iniesta told Sports Four. “I think important clubs want to have Neymar.

“I think he is happy where he is and my only wish is that he continues with us and that he plays at the same level as the previous season.”
