Neymar ‘WILL sign a new PSG contract this weekend worth £26m-per-season’ as Brazilian star ends speculation over a return to Barcelona and commits his future to Mauricio Pochettino… and Kylian Mbappe is next!
Neymar will sign a four-year contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain this weekend, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.
The Brazilian forward, 29, joined PSG in 2017 from LaLiga side Barcelona for a record transfer fee of £198million.
Neymar said he wanted to leave France in 2019 amid reports that he wanted to return to Barcelona, but eventually stayed before the club reached the Champions League final last season.
Neymar will reportedly sign a four-year contract extension with PSG this weekend
Now he is ready to commit his future to Mauricio Pochettino’s side and sign an extension until 2026 worth €30m (£26m) per season.
It’s also claimed that the contract will include a huge bonus if PSG win the Champions League in the next few years.
PSG are also looking to extend Kylian Mbappe’s deal as the 22-year-old France striker’s contract expires at the end of next season.
In his first PSG press conference for two years last week, Neymar said he was ‘really happy’ at the club, hinting at a possible extension of his contract.
He was, however, unable to help the team reach a second successive Champions League final as PSG were knocked out in the semi-finals by Manchester City with a 4-1 aggregate defeat.
Neymar’s time at PSG has been inconsistent, with the Brazilian gracing the fans with some moments of brilliance while winning three straight Ligue 1 titles.
However, he has failed to make his impact truly felt in Champions League knockout ties.
