Neymar only renews if PSG recruits Messi

Hispanic newspaper Mundo Deportivo revealed that Neymar had applied to extend his contract with PSG, to play with Lionel Messi.

Neymar overcame teammate Kylian Mbappe to become the number one figure in PSG’s dressing room. His contract expires on June 2022, and French promoters are contacting him to extend.

Messi’s contract with Barca also ends in June 2021. At the end of this season, he is free to leave. Only PSG has enough financial resources to treat Messi better than Man City. However, they only recruit an Argentine supermarket if Mbappe leaves.

According to French radio RMC, the new contract negotiations between Mbappe and PSG were interrupted, as last season’s Champions League second position considered the possibility of Messi taking over. Mbappe is thought to be a target for Real Madrid and Liverpool.

Neymar scored a double in the 3-1 win over host Man Utd on Dec. 2 in the Champions League. After the fight, he said ESPN: “What I want the most right now is play with Messi, enjoy it again. Messi can play in my position, no problem.”

It is also not excluded that Neymar will return to Barca, despite the legal dispute between the two sides. Barca’s presidential candidate – Toni Freixa – said Neymar wasn’t even in the top 30 players. Acting President Carles Tusquets said Neymar needs to cancel Barca’s case if he wants to return to Camp Nou.
