Neymar has signed a contract extension that will see him stay at Paris Saint-Germain until the end of 2024-2025 season, the reigning French champions announced on Saturday.
The Brazilian has claimed three Ligue 1 titles with PSG since arriving in 2017 from Barcelona for 222 million euros ($270 million) in what remains the most expensive transfer in history.
“I’m really pleased to continue my adventure at Paris Saint-Germain,” the 29-year-old said in a club statement after signing a contract extension until June 20, 2025.
I’m very happy in Paris, and proud to be part of this squad, to work with these players, a great coach and to be part of the history of this club.
On his part, PSG coach, Mauricio Pochettino in a press conference said;
Everyone in the PSG family is happy that a player of Neymar’s talent has extended his contract.
Neymar has also won two French Cups with PSG, but the major honour that he was bought by the Qatari-owned club to win, the Champions League, continues to prove elusive.
He helped PSG to reach last season’s Champions League final where they were beaten by Bayern Munich but the club’s chances of reaching the final again were crushed by Manchester City on Tuesday — and Neymar was ineffectual in the 2-0 semi-final second-leg defeat in England.
There has frequently been speculation in Spain that Barcelona wanted to re-sign him, but Neymar’s decision to extend his deal in the French capital is not a surprise as he has looked increasingly settled at PSG in recent months.
Back in September 2019, Lionel Messi said he would have “loved” Neymar to return to the club.
At the time, he stated;
I would have loved for Neymar to come. I don’t know if Barca did everything possible to bring him back but it’s true that negotiating with PSG is not easy.
PSG will now turn their attention to persuading forward Kylian Mbappe to stay at the club.
The French World Cup-winning forward is coveted by a host of Europe’s top clubs.
