Neymar will not leave Barcelona: Suarez

Barcelona, Feb 4 (IANS) Barcelona striker Luis Suarez is confident that his teammate Neymar will not leave the reigning European champions in the summer, despite mounting speculation over his future.

Neymar is currently involved in a protracted wrangle over a new contract which has alerted the likes of Manchester United and even Real Madrid.

The 23-year-old Brazil international’s situation has been further complicated by the ongoing investigations into alleged fraud and corruption relating to his move to Barcelona in 2013.

But the former Liverpool striker insisted that there is no chance of Neymar leaving the Spanish champions.

“I am convinced that Neymar will remain at Barcelona. The club supports him, and I am sure that he will play here for many years,” Suarez said after his team’s thumping 7-0 Copa del Rey first leg win over Valencia on Wednesday.
