Despite increased talks that Brazilian star Neymar will make a sensational move to the English Premier League this summer, Barcelona’s vice-president Carles Vilarrubi has refuted such claims; declaring that the talented forward is going nowhere.
Neymar has a contract with Barcelona till 2018 and while the media is awash with talks of joining either of the Manchester teams for an audacious £145m transfer fee, Vilarrubi said the Brazilian will instead be signing a new contract with Barcelona.
“Neymar will renew his contract,” a defiant Villarrubi told Radio Catalunya. “It will be when he wants, and when the club wants. We are absolutely certain.
“He is committed to the team and is happy with his teammates. The club gives him a lot of happiness.”
Villarrubi also played down reports that incoming City manager Pep Guardiola is also planning to raid his former club for Sergio Busquets.
