Neymar's father: He will see out Santos contract

The father of Santos and Brazil star Neymar has insisted in comments to the Brazilian media that his son will see out his current contract with the São Paulo state side.

Neymar, 21, has been frequently linked with a move to the likes of Barcelona, PSG and Manchester City for some time, but has always insisted he would not leave until after the 2014 World Cup.

Despite recent reports to the contrary, Neymar Sr. confirmed that his son still intends to reach the World Cup while representing Santos at club level.

His father told Lancenet: "I won't say that it's not true, but a lot of that is speculation. I've been talking to everyone that Neymar is under contract at Santos. This is simple, when Santos say 'We will sell Neymar', we'll position ourselves.

"But it's the other way around. Neymar has a contract until (June) 2014, and Santos even talk about renewing (the contract).

"Offers came in June and December last year, thank God there are always clubs interested in Neymar. I won't say that's a bad thing, it's good clubs express interest for him."
