Neymar extends ‘£24m-a-year contract’ with PSG until 2027.
The Brazilian reportedly exercised an option to extend his contract at Paris Saint-Germain – which could end speculation over the Brazilian forward’s future
Chelsea and Newcastle, as well as other clubs, were interested in the signing of the 30 year old following reports that PSG had informed the player that he was no longer wanted.
The French giants are trying to free-up cash to pursue their summer targets and Neymar appears the most vulnerable of the famed front three, with Lionel Messi’s place safe and Kylian Mbappe having agreed to stay after signing a bumper new deal worth a huge £650,000 a week.
According to RMC Sport, Neymar, who arrived in Paris for a world-record transfer fee of £199.8m in 2017, has been told he is surplus to requirements ahead of the new season as PSG pursue a fresh start.
Neymar reportedly felt targeted by Nasser Al-Khelaifi earlier this summer as the club president spoke out to address PSG’s shortcoming last season, and was considering an exit from the Parc des Princes.
But the Sport newspaper reported Neymar has instead opted to exercise the option on his contract, which would keep him in Paris until 2027.
