Any club interested in signing Neymar, including Real Madrid would have to pay at least €430million according to the forward’s father.

The Brazilian was a subject of transfer rumours in the summer, with Real Madrid and PSG among clubs interested in acquiring him. However, after signing a five-year extension at the Camp Nou, the rumours were quelled.

Neymar Snr says the 24-year-old never had any desire to quit Camp Nou and is unlikely to consider any future offer, even if a club comes forward with a world-record bid.

“The offers didn’t reach him; they came to me,” he told Mundo Deportivo when asked about the bids. “I know what Neymar wanted, and that was to stay.

“I receive a lot of people in my office in Barcelona. Of course, some of them come to know if Neymar has a future at another club.

“But I’m very clear on this: to try to get him out of Barcelona, you have to try to take away the happiness that he has here.

“If he wanted to go after a financial benefit, everyone knows he would not be at Barca. But Neymar is happy at the club, he has made very strong friendships with his team-mates.

“Madrid were interested through intermediaries and I always told everyone the same: you would have to pay the release clause of €190million, plus the taxes on that, and with all the rest it could end up being close to €430m.”
