Neymar will stay at Barcelona and is set to sign a new contract, club president Josep Bartomeu has confirmed.

The 24-year-old has 55 goals in 93 La Liga games since joining from Santos for a reported fee of £48.6m in 2013.

Reports had suggested that Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain were interested in signing the Brazilian, whose current contract ends in 2018.

Bartomeu said: “Neymar wants to stay here. In the next few days we will finalise his contract extension.”

Neymar has also scored 46 goals in 70 appearances for his country.

While at the Catalan club, he has secured two La Liga titles, two Copa del Rey trophies and the 2014/15 Champions League.

Barcelona were forced to pay a £4.3m fine in June because of mistakes in Neymar’s transfer from Santos in 2013.
