After months of speculation, linking him with a move away from the Camp Nou, Neymar is set to sign a new five-year deal with Barcelona.

The superstar joined Barcelona in 2013 from Santos, and was also linked with a move to Real Madrid while still playing in Brazil.

Neymar seemed to confirm his intentions on Thursday night when he revealed he was "living the dream" in Barcelona.

In his three seasons at the Camp Nou, the 24-year-old has scored 85 goals, with 55 of them coming in the League. With Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, the trio have become the most dangerous group of strikers in the world.

Neymar's success at Barcelona has seen him win two La Ligas, a Champions League and two Copa del Reys.
