Neymar’s father has denied the Brazilian has had contact with Barcelona and says he’s “very, very happy in Paris”.
The Brazilian winger is currently injured. His father told Telefoot that the stories about him wanting a Barca return are “no more than lies”.
“I have not had a single call with Barcelona, that’s false,” said Neymar’s father, who is his agent too.
“Of course Barca are a great team. We were all happy there. And it’s evident that when you talk about transfers, Neymar’s name comes up. It’s impossible to leave a player like him out of the rumours.”
Neymar Sr said: “His future is in Paris, his present is in Paris. It’s hard to talk about the future because in football anything can change at any moment (but) besides the injury, he’s very happy in Paris.”
