Neymar reacts after extending his contract with PSG

Brazi international, Neymar, has expressed joy after committing his future to Paris Saint-Germain by extending his contract until 2025.

Neymar joined the Ligue 1 champions from Barcelona on a 5-year deal at a world record cost of 222 million euros in August 2017.

The 29-year-old had been linked with a return to Barcelona, but he has now firmly committed to PSG, who announced his new contract on Saturday.

Neymar’s new terms, according to media reports in Paris, will see him earn 30 million euros every season in the French capital.

“I am very happy, very happy to be extending my contract with Paris until 2025,” Neymar told the club’s website after signing the deal.

“The truth is that I am 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.

“I have changed a lot. I have learned a lot.

“Things have happened that should not have happened. We had fights, a few sad times, but overall the evolution has been very positive.

“I am happy, I’m proud to be part of the history of Paris Saint-Germain. I think I’ve improved as a person, as a human being, and as a player too.

“So, I’m very happy to be extending my contract, to be part of the history of Paris and I hope to put many more trophies on the shelf for Paris Saint-Germain.

“Of course, my goal when I came to Paris Saint-Germain was to help get Paris Saint-Germain to the top, among the very best, and we are getting close.

“We are gaining more and more experience to help us negotiate these types of games, to know how to play in the Champions League.

“And Paris is on the right track, we are getting closer and closer to the taste of winning the Champions League. I’m sure we can do it.”
