What does the future hold for Neymar?

Neymar wants to see out his contract until 2027 in the French capital.

París (Francia)Update:
What does the future hold for Neymar?

Despite PSG’s intention to sell Neymar this summer, the Brazilian’s contractual situation makes a transfer during the summer window difficult. In 2022, the club put him up for sale, but he exercised a clause in his contract that allowed him to renew automatically until 2027, in a deal that increased his salary.

According to The Athletic, Neymar’s intention is to honour his entire contract. PSG’s No 10 feels happy in Paris and is aware that, at 31, there is no other team in Europe, not even Chelsea, that can come close to his economic demands. The ankle injury he suffered in February, on which he underwent surgery last week in Doha, also reduces the likelihood of a departure in the coming months.

PSG with Neymar

Since arriving in 2017, Neymar has led PSG in a phase of growth. With 13 domestic titles and an extraordinary increase in the club’s revenue, the Brazil international has yet to win the Champions League - the title he wants in the remaining four years of his contract. In 2020 the club reached the final, and lost to Bayern Munich, and in 2021 they reached the semi-finals. His ongoing injuries, which kept him out of quite a few European ties, including the return leg against Bayern a week ago, have been a major disruption in his stint in the French capital.

In the current campaign, before his most recent injury, his numbers were more than impressive: 18 goals and 17 assists in 29 games in all competitions. Both Luis Campos, PSG’s sporting adviser, and Christophe Galtier, PSG’s head coach, consistently reiterated in public the commitment of Neymar. After the World Cup, his performance level plummeted. His right ankle, which also hampered him at the World Cup, gave way on 20 February and he won’t play again until next season.

If he finishes his four-year contract with PSG, Neymar will be 35 when he leaves the French side. His goal, as reported by The Athletic, is to finish his career in the French capital. He will be 34 when the next World Cup comes around. His future is unlikely to be decided in June. The club, meanwhile, want to build a team around Kylian Mbappé and give the Frenchman all the tools he needs to win the Champions League.
