Neymar ‘will sign a new PSG contract TODAY worth Â£26m-per-season’ until 2026 as Brazilian star ends talk over a return to Barcelona and commits his future to Mauricio Pochettino… and Kylian Mbappe is next to be signed up!
Neymar will sign a four-year contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain this weekend, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.
The Brazilian forward, 29, joined PSG in 2017 from LaLiga side Barcelona for a record transfer fee of Â£198million.
Neymar said he wanted to leave France in 2019 amid reports that he was set to return to Barcelona, but eventually stayed before the club reached the Champions League final last season.

The Brazilian is ready to commit his future to Mauricio Pochettino’s side with deal until 2026
Now he is ready to commit his future to Mauricio Pochettino’s side and sign an extension until 2026 worth â‚¬30m (Â£26m) per season.
It’s also claimed that the contract will include a huge bonus if PSG win the Champions League in the next few years.Â Â
PSG are also looking to extend Kylian Mbappe’s deal as the 22-year-old France striker’s contract expires at the end of next season.Â
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.Â
Kylian Mbappe is being lined up as the next big PSG star to pen fresh terms following Neymar
‘I have got time left on my contract here at PSG,’ Neymar said. ‘We want to do what is best for everyone.Â
‘I have already said that I am happy here and I feel much better than in the previous seasons.
‘There are some aspects that I have improved here. I also went through difficult times with things that people know about. I have always worked hard and have always been professional, contrary to what some people believe.
‘PSG have grown a lot, the club is more respected. When people talk about PSG, they know that we are in the last four, five or six teams in the Champions League.’
He was, however, unable to help the team reach a second successive Champions League final as PSG were knocked out in the semi-finals by Manchester City with a 4-1 aggregate defeat.
The Brazilian has failed to make a consistent impact in PSG’s Champions League knockout ties
Neymar’s time at PSG has been inconsistent, with the Brazilian gracing the fans with some moments of brilliance while winning three straight Ligue 1 titles.
However, he has failed to make his impact truly felt in Champions League knockout ties, with a combination of injuries and inconsistent performances.
Neymar has missed five European knockout matches for PSG through injury during his time in France, and in the 10 he has featured in, he has scored just twice.
