Barcelona superstar Neymar looks well settled at the club, and has no intentions of leaving the Catalans this summer. However, the Brazilian has been linked with a summer move to Manchester United, and when he was asked about the same, he gave a cheeky reply.
Neymar said he is happy with the way things are at the moment at Barcelona, although nobody can guarantee what can happen in the future.
According to reports, when a journalist pressed on a whether a move to Old Trafford is possible, he cheekily dismissed the rumour in a comic manner, by replying: “Yes… or Eibar!”
Neymar has been a formidable force for the Spanish giants in recent seasons, and signed a new contract only last year. The forward is relishing the partnership upfront with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, and is in no mood to leave Camp Nou.
He has a contract with the Catalans till 2021, and Barca feel their star player is focused on the job and has plenty of loyalty to show for it. Neymar’s attention lies on Barca, and the Brazil international is enjoying his time ahead of the pre-season tour of the United States, where his team will face Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils.
The Spanish giants won just the Copa del Rey last season, and are looking for reinforcements this summer, especially in midfield. They will look to get back the La Liga crown from rivals Real Madrid under new manager Ernesto Valverde, and also challenge for the Champions League.
