Neymar to agree six-year deal to remain at Barcelona

Barcelona forward Neymar is reportedly close to agreeing a new six-year deal at the Camp Nou to fend off interest from numerous other clubs.

The Brazil international, previously linked with a move to the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Paris-Saint Germain, is currently under contract until 2018.

According to The Sun, Neymar is now close to agreeing fresh terms with the Catalan giants which will see his release clause increase to around £170m.

Should the 24-year-old put pen to paper, it is claimed that his £77,000-a-week wages will be tripled until 2022, as Barca desperately try to see off interest from fellow European heavyweights.

It is suggested that Barca are unable to increase Neymar’s buy-out clause any higher as they then risk triggering talks with Lionel Messi due to a small print in the Argentine ace’s own contract.

Barcelona are thought to be close to agreeing a new deal with sportswear giant Nike, eclipsing the £75million-a-season that Manchester United bank from Adidas, which will fund Neymar’s mammoth new contract.
