Barcelona considers offering Neymar contract extension

25 August 2015, 21:40

Barcelona - Barcelona's club president says the European champions will consider offering Neymar a contract extension amid speculation that Manchester United is interested in signing the Brazil striker.

Josep Bartomeu tells Catalunya Radio that "in the next few months we will talk about an extension. He must stay, not just three years, but five or 10 years more."

The 23-year-old Neymar is under contract until 2018. Media reports in Brazil speculate that United is willing to pay his €190 milllion ($218 million) buyout clause.

Neymar scored 39 goals last season, his second with the club, to help Barcelona win the Champions League, Spanish league and Copa del Rey treble.

He has yet to play this season while recovering from the mumps.
