Neymar has dealt Manchester United a blow by revealing that he is keen on signing a new contract at Barcelona.

The Brazilian was heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils over the summer as he stalled on contract negotiations with the Catalan club.

United were reportedly ready to splash as much as £240m to bring Neymar to Old Trafford during the summer transfer window.

However, the player himself has now indicated that he is planning to stay at Camp Nou.

“I am very happy at Barca, and in Barcelona, where I have settled very well,” Neymar told Mundo Deportivo.

“I have three more years left on my contract, and my father looks after these things.

“Of course [I want to renew], but we’ll talk about that later

“My only concern at the moment is to be focused on helping the team and to keep winning trophies at Barca.”
