    Neymar ‘tells Paris Saint-Germain he wants to stay’

    Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is apparently hoping to pen a new five-year deal at the Parc des Princes after a summer switch back to Barcelona failed.

    Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is apparently ready to extend his contract at the Parc des Princes after a summer return to Barcelona failed.

    The Brazil international was tipped to make an astonishing switch back to Camp Nou throughout the summer, however owing to the financial effect of the coronavirus pandemic, the Catalan giants did not swoop for their former player.

    Barca’s difficulties behind the scenes are well-documented at the minute, with La Blaugrana trying to work out a pay cut with their stars as they look to decrease their wage costs by ₤ 170m in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis.

    As a result, Foot Mercato reports that Neymar has accepted that a return to Camp Nou is off the cards, and the 28-year-old is now enthusiastic of penning a new five-year deal with PSG, where he is currently under contract till 2022.

    Nevertheless, any new deal would apparently see Neymar require the very same wage which he currently makes at the Ligue 1 champions, with the former Barca man set to pocket ₤ 32.4 m a year in the French capital.

    Neymar already has 3 goals and 3 assists to his name in all competitions this term and boasts an overall of 72 goals in 89 games for PSG since his arrival.
