Amid reports of interest from Manchester United, Chelsea and PSG, Neymar has reiterated his commitment to Barcelona.

Neymar, 25, has scored 16 goals in 42 appearances in all competitions and is hoping to help his club to a double of La Liga and Copa del Rey trophies this season.

But, after reports of a bust-up with Luis Enrique’s assistant Juan Carlos Unzue at the training ground last week, the Brazilian has insisted he is going nowhere.

It was reported that Unzue made some comments about the Brazilian’s off-field activities, with the coach suggesting he should focus on his performances on the pitch.

“I want to be here and that’s why I’ve renewed,” he told beIN Sports. “I’m happy with everything I’ve done here for the club. I’m happy with my teammates and I feel at home.

“It’s sad that Enrique is leaving, we’ve been through a lot of good things together. I like the way he works as he wants to win and he’s one of the best coaches around.

“We wish him all the best and thank him for everything he has taught us. Now we must continue.”

Meanwhile, the Brazilian’s clinical hat-trick guided Barcelona to victory against Las Palmas last night and keeps the side’s La Liga title hopes alive.

The visitors fired four goals past their opponents, with Luis Suarez also finding the back of the net, to remain top of the table.

Barcelona are level with Real Madrid on 87 points who still boast a game in hand against out-of-form Celta Vigo on Wednesday night.

Whatever happens in Vigo, the title will be decided in the final round of games next weekend after Barcelona’s rousing victory in the Canary Islands.

Neymar went on to clinch his hat-trick after Barcelona defender Lucas Digne escaped a red card for his eighth-minute challenge on Las Palmas forward Jese.

Digne was the last defender as he brought down Jese, but he was only shown a yellow card and Barcelona made the most of their good fortune.

Neymar and Luis Suarez struck before the half-hour mark, but Pedro Bigas halved the deficit after 63 minutes.

However, Neymar produced clinical finishes after 67 and 71 minutes to safeguard the points for Barcelona.
