The Ligue 1 champion is reportedly going to offer Neymar a new contract worth €38 million a year to persuade him to stay in PSG.
The 28-year-old Brazilian star has been regularly linked to Barcelona return where he played from 2013 and 2017 before his record-breaking €225m move to PSG.
New PSG offer to Neymar
According to Diario Sport, PSG sporting director Leonardo is willing to tie him to the club until 2025 with a deal worth €740,000 a week. The new deal would bring Neymar’s salary closer to – Lionel Messi at Barcelona and Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus.
Neymar had scored 18 goals and contributed ten assists in all competitions for PSG this season prior to the COVID-19 shutdown though his 2019-20 campaign was interrupted for suspensions and injuries.
His existing deal, worth around €690,000 a week, expires in 2022 and his consent to a new deal would finally stop rumours he wants to return to Barcelona. Neymar is already the highest earner at the PSG by some distance, with his 21-year-old team-mate Kylian Mbappe the next on €430,000 a week, according to L’Equipe.
Neymar Transfer – Post Pandemic
Reports in Spain in recent months suggested that Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is interested in having his former team-mate back in Camp Nou and La Liga champion could move for both Neymar and Lautaro Martinez during the summer transfer window. But the Coronavirus pandemic has changed the scenario completely, as businesses are seriously affected, and Barca players agreed to take a 70 per cent wage cut during the crisis, so non-playing staff can get paid.
PSG currently have a 12 point lead over Marseille in Ligue 1 as they aim to defend their French title. They also went past Borussia Dortmund to progress to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League prior to the suspension of football.
