Neymar will stay with Paris Saint-Germain for the long term. As the club announced on Saturday, the Brazilian has extended his contract, which will expire in 2022, until 2025.
After long-lasting speculation, the French champion has now succeeded in persuading one of his superstars to stay. “It is a great pleasure for me to continue my adventure at PSG. I am very happy in Paris. I am proud to be part of this group, to work with these players and this great coach and to be part of the history of this club his “, Neymar was quoted in the official announcement.
Remaining on the Seine should be financially sweetened for the offensive player: According to the Sky-Journalist Fabrizio Romano is expected to earn Neymar around 30 million euros per year in the future. In addition, there are performance-related additional payments and a high bonus when winning the premier class.
Apparently PSG also had to block the advertising of FC Barcelona, from which the French Neymar had brought in 2017 for the world record fee of 222 million euros.
The next step for the Parisians is to clarify the future of star striker Kylian Mbappe. His contract will also expire in 2022. But unlike Neymar, the 22-year-old hesitates with an extension.
PSG: Mbappe’s future is still open
Mbappe is repeatedly associated with Real Madrid, even if its president Florentino Perez had to a certain extent ruled out a transfer of this magnitude after the failure of the Super League plans.
With PSG, Neymar is still playing for the Ligue 1 championship these days. The reigning champion is currently four points behind leaders Lille, who defeated RC Lens 3-0 on Friday evening and thus played one more game than PSG.
