Neymar could be forced to leave Barcelona due to his ongoing tax issues in Spain, according to his father. Skysports Reports.
The Brazil striker, who attracted interest from Manchester United in the summer, is in negotiations over extending his contract, which runs out in 2018.
Barca are keen to renew the 23-year-old’s deal and increase his £140m release clause but ahead of Saturday’s Clasico clash with Real Madrid – his father and manager, Neymar Santos Sr, has raised doubts about his son’s future with the club.
“We’ve begun contract renewal talks, but there are outstanding issues that concern us, and which need to be resolved,” Neymar Sr told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.
“Since we arrived to Spain we have been under attack and it has extended to Brazil. For the last two-and-a-half years, we have had to defend ourselves from accusations.
“We will respect Neymar’s contract with Barca but regarding the contract extension, we need a deal that gives us peace of mind for Neymar, my companies and my family.
