Barcelona's technical secretary, Robert Fernández, said it loud and clear on TVE (Spanish national TV): "I'd be worried if he weren't happy, if he weren't comfortable. But that's not the case. He will be staying here." This was his response to the questions about the contract extension that Neymar is currently negotiating with the club, which is still not signed and about which there is much speculation. "I'll say the same thing I thought three months ago. He'll be staying with us because he is happy here. Neymar is staying at Barça", he stated bluntly.

Neymar's participation with the Brazil national team in the coming summer's competitions (the 2016 Centennial Copa America and the Rio Olympic Games) is a matter of concern for Barcelona because, as Fernández points out "it always carries a risk" for the club, in the form of possible injuries. "We'll try to figure out what is best for the player and the club. We have to discuss it with the Brazil coach", he said, although in principle the idea is that, if he only takes part in one of the tournaments, it should be in the Rio Olympics.

He also spoke about the now famous Periscope app that Piqué uses, and passed the hot potato over to the Liga authorities. "In the end we''re going to have to get used to these things that we didn't have a few years ago" he said jokingly, before confirming that it is a matter for the football authorities: "It is up to the Professional Football League (LFP) to regulate these practices. Am I worried about it? No, this stuff doesn't bother me, I'm more concerned with matters that are my responsibility." Javier Tebas, the president of the LFP, has already warned that measures will be taken to establish rules regarding the use footballers make of social media.
