Neymar will Not Leave Barcelona-Barca President

Neymar will not be leaving Barcelona despite reports that Paris St-Germain have triggered his £195m release clause, club president Josep Maria Bartomeu has told BBC Sport.

The Brazil forward signed a new five-year contract until 2021 in October, with his release clause set to rise with each year of the deal.

Neymar, 25, joined from Santos in 2013.

He scored 13 goals as Barcelona came second, three points behind La Liga champions Real Madrid, last season.

Neymar won a third Copa del Rey with the Catalan club last season, adding to two La Liga titles and a Champions League.
