Neymar Sr ‘calm over contract’

The father and agent of Barcelona forward Neymar says he is ‘sure’ the forward will renew at Camp Nou but doesn’t expect the deal done quickly.

Rumours have linked other clubs with interest in Neymar as Barca try to tie down the Ballon d’Or nominee, but Neymar Sr believes he’ll stay put.

“Stay calm, I’m sure Neymar will renew. There is no hurry. He still has three years on his contract,” Marca quotes him as saying.

Neymar Sr was speaking at the LFP Awards, at which his son claimed the prize for La Liga’s Best South American Player in 2014-15.
