Neymar completes transfer U-turn by signing new contract?
Brazilian superstar Neymar has reportedly agreed a new four-year contract at PSG.
Neymar’s future at the Parc des Princes has been shrouded in doubt for several months as his current contract expires in 2022.
Negotiations for a new deal had not proven fruitful in recent months but Brazilian journalist Marcelo Bechler – who has excellent connections to the player – reported on Tuesday that Neymar has all but agreed on a new four-year contract.
Bechler revealed that negotiations are so advanced that the new deal could become official as early as this week.
“I am happy today. I am truly happy. Things have changed a lot. I can’t exactly explain why,” Neymar told TF1.
“But today, I am feeling good. I have adapted. I am more calm and I am more happy.
“I want to stay at PSG. I also want Kylian to stay. We want PSG to be a great team.
“I want to continue to play football and be happy, that is the most important thing.”
Neymar joined PSG for a world record fee of €222 million from Barcelona in 2017.
