The more the months go by, the more the climate relaxes between Neymar and PSG. Very close to a departure in the summer of 2019, the Brazilian winger, whose contract ends on June 30, 2022, would see a contract extension with the champion of France as “an option“according to information from The team. Indeed, the former Barcelonan feels good in the capital but also in the Parisian group. Neymar’s entourage and Parisian management have therefore agreed to meet soon to study the conditions for a possible extension. The daily reveals that this option “figure prominently“, in particular because of the economic crisis which shakes the world football and in particular those which had checked the name of the ex-player of Santos.
As for Kylian Mbappé, the very first approach to PSG dates from the end of 2018, just after the Russian World Cup won by the native of Bondy. According to The team the discussions between the two parties, which began a few months ago, were judged “constructive“. As for Neymar, the economic crisis could favor PSG in the Mbappé file.”Basically today maybe Real Madrid and England can do it“, indicates a source of the Parisian club.
However, Paris Saint-Germain, also affected by the crisis, will have to be financially ready to extend their star duo. At the club, voices assure that it will be very difficult to complete such an operation in the current context. Indeed, the duo costs 166 million euros each year including charges. But by letting go of big salaries like Edinson Cavani or Thiago Silva this summer, PSG wanted to give themselves the means to keep their jewels. At the risk of weakening sportingly?
