The desire for seeing Neymar in a Barcelona shirt is almost definitively over, because the Brazilian forward has explained to Paris Saint-Germain that he wish to renew his agreement.
Neymar recognizes that it is almost difficult for him to return to the Camp Nou, where he left in 2017, due to the present financial situation Barcelona find themselves in.
The 28-year-old enjoys in the French capital and has shared this to PSG, while he has also informed the club’s showing off supervisor, Leonardo, that he wishes to renew his agreement, according to Footmercato.
Nevertheless, PSG will certainly not prioritise providing Neymar a new deal as they are only focused on encouraging Kylian Mbappe to expand his stay with the club.
The French onward’s present agreement comes to an end in 2022, and clubs like Real Madrid, Liverpool, Juventus and also Barcelona have him on their want list.
This does not stress Neymar, that is not open to the suggestion of suggesting to PSG’s leaders that he would approve a pay cut.
In other words, he does not intend to give up his income of 30 million euros net each year.
Like Mbappe, the Brazil international’s agreement ends in June 2022, so if he doesn’t concern a contract over a new deal, he would be free to start negotiating a free move to clubs in January of that year, which is 14 and a half months’ time.
This is not also a thinking about in Paris.
Neymar is a key player in PSG’s project, although he is presently harmed and will be a huge loss for Thomas Tuchel’s side in their upcoming matches in Ligue 1 and the Champions League.
Because completing a world-record transfer to PSG in 2017, Neymar has played a total of 91 games, in which time he has scored 72 goals and supplied 45 helps.
