Neymar's father denies travelling to Barcelona

Neymar's father has refuted a report that claimed he was travelling to Barcelona for discussions about his son's proposed move from Paris Saint-Germain.

Barca are believed to be interested in fulfilling Neymar's rumoured wish for a return to Camp Nou after two seasons in France.

Negotiations between the clubs are said to have started and a report in Brazil claimed Neymar Sr was set for talks with Andre Cury, an adviser to the LaLiga champions.

"I'm not going to Barcelona to negotiate," Neymar Sr told Fox Sports Brazil.

"I am in Brazil and I will continue here until we return to Paris with my son."
