Barcelona have moved to put an end to speculation surrounding Neymar's future by insisting he will sign a new contract at the club.

Doubts about the Brazilian star's future resurfaced last week when his father Neymar Snr stated tax issues could force the forward to leave Spain.

However, Barca are in talks over extending the 23-year-old's stay at the Camp Nou, and the club's technical secretary Robert Fernandez believes the two parties will strike an agreement soon.

"When one starts with the intention to renew, we all know that we can reach an agreement," he told Spanish television station TV3.

"We are all in agreement that Neymar will stay here at Barcelona. The player has expressed it publicly, his camp too.
