Neymar ends speculation and signs new PSG contract
After much speculation over his future, PSG superstar Neymar put pen to paper and signed a new deal with the club on Friday afternoon.
Neymar had only one year left on his contract but has penned a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2025.
In addition, there is the option of PSG extending the contract by one year if they choose to do so.
Speaking after signing the contract, Neymar revealed the reason behind his decision, while adding that he still very much wants a Champions League win with Les Parisiens.
“I’m very happy, very happy to be extending my contract with Paris until 2025. The truth is that I’m very happy to be staying here for four more years, to be a part of the club’s project, to try and win titles, to try and achieve our biggest dream which is the Champions League. So I’m happy to be staying at the club, to be a part of it and to be extending my contract.”
“The first factor is happiness. The joy of being part of this squad, of the team, of Paris Saint-Germain, the club. And then, of course, the affinity I have with the club, with the work, with the players that are in the squad today, with a great coach who will certainly help us even more. These things make you believe in the project even more.”
