Barcelona are confident that Neymar remains happy at the Camp Nou amid reports that Paris Saint-Germain are triggering the Brazilian's release clause.

Spanish outlet AS reported on Monday that PSG are ready to pay 222 million -- double the world-record transfer -- to sign Neymar, if the player would agree to move to France.

Meanwhile, Diario Sport reported that Neymar was growing "uncomfortable" at getting second billing behind Lionel Messi at Barcelona.

But club spokespersonJosep Vives said the club were unworried when asked if there any concerns Neymar would opt to leave Barcelona this summer.

"The only thing we care is he keeps being happy here," Vives said at a news conference for Barcelona's financial report. "He played a magnificent season and he is still one of the best in the world.

"He is happy in the club and the club is happy with him. He verbalises it and he shows it with his attitude. We are relaxed about that and we only hope next season is better than the last one.
