Neymar agrees €12m Barca deal?

Neymar will reportedly put pen to paper on a new, five-year contract with Barcelona worth €12m once he returns from Copa America.

According to Sport, the Brazilian agreed terms with La Blaugrana in March to double his salary and consequently make him the club’s second best-paid player to Lionel Messi.

The newspapers also states the lack of time between the Champions League final on June 7 and Copa America, which kicked off four days later, and the upcoming presidential elections made it impossible for the forward to sign on the dotted line before he departed for Chile.

Neymar scored 39 goals in a treble-winning season with Barca and scored and assisted in Brazil’s 2-1 win against Peru on Sunday to ensure his country began their Copa campaign on a high.
