Neymar agrees to renew his contract with Barcelona until 2021
The Brazilian and the club have finally agreed terms to guarantee his continuity for years to come
Amid heavy interest from the French champions PSG and being one of Ed Woodward's main targets at Manchester United, Neymar has agreed to extend his contract with Barcelona until 2021, quashing rumors of a possible Summer exit. The club was struggling to sign new sponsorship deals, but now we can rest easy the Brazilian will live the best years of his career in a Blaugrana shirt.
The information comes from Jordi Borda, who revealed it at El Club de la Mitjanit (The Midnight Club), one of Catalunya Radio shows. The journalist is among the best at Barcelona and we can rest assured Neymar will continue to play alongside Messi and Suárez next season and beyond.
His renewal will be announced in the coming weeks and he's set to officially sign his new contract next month.
