Neymar Agrees Contract Extension, To Sign On Friday

Neymar will end speculation about his future by signing a new contract with Barcelona.

Neymar's new deal means that Manchester United and French giants Paris Saint-Germain will have to pay a mammoth fee if they are to persuade him to leave.

Neymar will sign a three-year contract extension with Barcelona on Friday, a deal that will keep the Brazil forward with the Spanish club until 2021.

His contract renewal comes on the day Javier Mascherano's new contract was formally announced and finalised.

In a statement, Barcelona announced that "the act to officialise Neymar's contract renewal will take place on October 21 at the club's offices at 3pm".

He has won La Liga twice, the Champions League, European Super Cup, Spanish Super Cup, and Copa del Rey twice.

Barcelona have revealed Brazilian superstar Neymar will put pen to paper on a new five-year contract on Friday.

Neymar and his father, who acts as his agent, are likely to face trial for fraud in Spain in a case into alleged irregularities regarding his transfer from Santos to Barcelona.

Barcelona reacted to avoid his departure and in July announced an agreement for Mascherano to renew his contract until 2019.

His current deal expires in two years time but Barcelona have now confirmed the player will be staying in Catalonia for three more years.
