While the Brazilian was given a brief break to spend his Christmas with his family, he returned to the Catalan city ahead of the La Liga clash against Real Betis on Wednesday.
The Brazilian star was confronted by a hoard of journalists on his return to Barcelona and was asked about Manchester Citya s interest in him. According to the Daily Mirror, Neymar confirmed the fact that Manuel Pellegrinia s side is interested in having him play for them and are trying to sign him.
Neymar has not committed to Barca
With just two and a half years to go on his contract, Neymar does not have much time left at the Catalan club. This seems to have gotten the vultures roaming above his head.
Asked about his future at the Catalan club, Neymar did not wish to reveal much and only responded by saying, “I don’t know, life is long.”
However the club authorities seem to be confident that an extension would soon be arranged, as they believe that the player himself is keen on staying at FC Barcelona.
