Neymar opens up on why he snubbed Barcelona return, signed new PSG deal
Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar has signed a new deal with the club to keep him at Parc des Princes until June 2025.
The 29-year-old claimed “happiness” was the main factor in extending his stay.
Neymar was heavily linked with a return to Barcelona, the club he left for PSG in 2017 in a world-record £200m deal.
However, he has now put pen to paper on a bumper five-year deal with the Ligue 1 giants.
“I have grown as a person here, as a human being and as a player, too,” he told the PSG website.
The Brazil international has scored 85 goals and registered 51 assists in 112 games for PSG.
