Barca ‘optimistic’ over Neymar

Barcelona have a better feeling today over Neymar’s contract than they did a few days ago, it’s reported, but he’ll either re-sign or be sold.

Mundo Deportivo says the club are more optimistic now even as the Brazil forward is chased by three suitors – Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United, while Barca director Raul Sanllehi has been in Brazil to speak with Neymar and his father.

However, the only two options are Neymar renews his contract to 2022 or he is sold for €190m, as staying on his current deal, which runs to 2018, isn’t an option Barca are considering.

The feeling at Camp Nou is that if Neymar values the sporting aspect of his future, he’ll take Barca’s offer, but if it’s about money, he’ll go to PSG or Manchester United, who are able to trump the terms offered by the Catalans.
