In what will come as good news to Paris-Saint Germain fans, Neymar has decided to sign a contract extension at the club. The contract will tie him down to the club till 2026.
Paris recently bowed out of the Champions League semi-finals and rumours about the future of their star player started doing the rounds in Paris. All of those concerns have been put to bed as the deal is expected to be signed in the coming week and will see the Brazilian star earn £26m-per-season.
The new contract will also have a Champions League bonus for the player if the club is able to win their maiden title before 2026.
Neymar will earn a whopping £26m per season at Paris in this new deal
The Brazilian forward joined the French club in 2017 for a record transfer fee of 222 million euros ($270.02 million) from Barcelona.
In his first PSG press conference for two years last week, Neymar said he was ‘really happy’ at the club, hinting at a possible extension of his contract.
‘I have got time left on my contract here at PSG,’ Neymar said. ‘We want to do what is best for everyone.
“I have already said that I am happy here and I feel much better than in the previous seasons.”
Neymar has already won 9 trophies at the French club including 3 Ligue 1 titles during his 4 year stay. He narrowly missed out on the coveted Champions League trophy last season after a 1-0 defeat against Bayern Munich in the finals.
Neymar has scored 85 goals for the Parisians so far in his 115 appearances and will look to add to his tally in the coming years. His immediate and main goal would be to defend Paris’s Ligue 1 title this season where they trail Lille by 4 points and have just 3 games left.
