A number of clubs have shown interest in FC Barcelona superstar Neymar. The Brazilian forward has been linked heavily to Manchester United for quite some time now and it looks like Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid also want him. 

But according to a report on Metro, Neymar's father has revealed that he will not leave Camp Nou to join Real Madrid.

Neymar's contract with Barcelona will get over in 2018 and the club have not started any talks of renewal with the Brazilian international.  

"The possibility of him ending up there is zero. Neymar's owners are Barcelona. Any proposals, any notifications, or any formality that comes in respect to Neymar, without question passes through Barcelona and Barcelona alone," Neymar Sr. was quoted as saying by Sky Sports

"He's still under contract with the club and they know everything that's going on. There's lots of speculation and it's clear he's become mixed up in all that. People know that there are various clubs interested in him for his football, but they don't want to say that he's talking to them or having any dealings.

"People have said 10,000 different things about my son. Neymar has a contract at Barcelona, and he has two years left. That's the only certainty. He has to obey that contract - besides, he's happy at the club. The speculation will go on, like it has been for a while, but everyone's used it by now."

However, Manchester United seem to have agreed to meet the player's world-record £157m ($210.3m) release clause.

Barcelona chief Susuana Monje has warned his suitors that they are not willing to sell any of their star players in the ongoing summer transfer window.

Meanwhile, one of Neymar's agents, Wagner Rebeiro has confirmed the fact that three clubs have agreed to meet his whopping release clause. PSG and the Champions League winners have also agreed to shell out that amount, along with Manchester United.
