Neymar contract ‘a matter of time’

Neymar is said to be ready to sign a new contract with Barcelona whenever the club and his father agree terms and no problems are expected.

Mundo Deportivo reports the club and the player are of the same mind and there’s no rush over extending the Brazilian’s deal.

Neymar’s father, Neymar Sr, is due in Barcelona next week after recovering from a short illness and recuperating the past two-and-a-half months from knee surgery.

President Josep Maria Bartomeu and director of football Raul Sanllehi have been in contact with Neymar Sr in that time, visiting him in Brazil in July when they travelled to speak to Fluminense about Gerson.

Informal talks over Neymar’s contract will begin when Neymar Sr is in Spain, but Neymar wants to stay out of the discussions and focus on football.
