No deal with Barca, says Neymar

Santos striker Neymar has rubbished reports that he has signed a pre-contract agreement with Barcelona.

Reports in Sport and RAC1 last year claimed that the Brazilian superstar has already agreed to join the Bluagrana.

But the 20-year-old has denied those rumours, insisting that he is happy at the Sao Paulo club.

“I do not have a deal with Barcelona or any other team,” he told El Pais. “The only thing for certain is that I have a contract with Santos and I am happy.

“This is a great club and I have a deal until 2014.

“The most important thing for me is that I am happy and I'm with my family, my friends and my club.

“My goal now is to help Santos and Brazil.”
