Neymar will pen Barcelona renewal

Neymar's father, Neymar Sr, has promised that his son will sign a contract renewal with Barcelona, but says there is no rush to do so.

The Brazil international has three years remaining on his current deal, but has been subject to interest from abroad in recent months.

However, Neymar Sr assured Barcelona fans that the 23-year-old, who is on the three-man shortlist for the Ballon d'Or, will eventually renew at the Camp Nou.

"We are going to renew with Barcelona, that's for sure," he said following the La Liga awards on Tuesday evening.

"He has three more years at Barca, so there's no need for urgency. There's no rush.

"We are relaxed and sure that Neymar will continue here for many more years. He is happy in Barcelona and there's no need for a change."
