On the same day that Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced his signing with Manchester United even though he's not even had a medical yet, Neymar is following the trend and gave Barcelona fans worldwide a reason to smile.

The Brazilian superstar sent out this tweet on his official account on Thursday:

"I'm very happy to continue living this dream! VISCA BARÇA and VISCA CATALUNYA"

Neymar has apparently signed a five-year contract extension with Barça, and will remain a Blaugrana through 2021. Barça president Josep Maria Bartomeu spoke about the renewal on his press conference, saying he was nearing a deal with the player's entourage and a new contract should be announced over the next few days.

Well, screw the press release. Neymar is announcing it himself. Better come directly from the source. We can stop the PSG and Real Madrid rumors, now. At least until next year.
