Neymar has been the face of Paris Saint-Germain for years. The French top club would very much like to keep the Brazilian in the Prinzenpark. But how does Neymar feel about his future?
He ultimately scored three goals. Neymar again proved his world class in the Champions League against Istanbul Başakşehir on Wednesday. The Brazilian led the team to first place in Group A – ahead of Rasenballsport Leipzig and Manchester United. No wonder PSG wants to keep him.
“We are in talks with Mbappé and Neymar to keep them with us. I am convinced they want to stay here,” club owner Nasser Al Khelaifi told the French medium “RMC Sport”.
And Neymar should also be open to a new contract. “RMC Sport” quoted him after the game against Başakşehir as saying: “I am very happy here in Paris. I am happy with the club and my teammates. The idea of leaving the club has not occurred to me yet. We must talk to each other, we have a good relationship. “
Barcelona’s return is less likely
With PSG Neymar, Bayern had just failed in the final of the Champions League. The French are also among the title favorites in the new season, with the team at the top of the table in Ligue 1.
Neymar has been linked with a return to FC Barcelona in previous transfer seasons. But the Catalans stumble not only athletically but also financially. A transfer from the 28-year-old, whose contract expires in the summer of 2022, is unlikely. Maybe that’s why Neymar is open to a new working document.
