The Brazilian joined PSG in 2017 for Barcelona when the Parisians signed him for a record fee of €222 million. At the Catalan club, Neymar established himself as one of the best players in the world but was unable to replicate that form in his first two seasons in France. However, this season he managed to deliver on his potential for the Ligue 1 team and is looking to build on that and make history with them.

‘I am staying at PSG next season,’ Neymar said during an interview with PSG Le Mag. ‘I remain and with the ambition to return to the final of the Champions League, this time to win it. I like this idea of ​​doing everything to leave my name in the history books of my club’ he added.

The 28-year-old has been linked with Barcelona on several occasions with reports suggesting that the Catalans were close to bringing him back at Camp Nou last year but the move fell through as PSG refused to sell their star player.
