Is Neymar coming back to Barcelona? This question has been in minds of Barcelona fans for a very long time. They want to see the Brazilian star back on their team, but that seems almost impossible right now. Their dream of watching Neymar in Barcelona is almost over, as he will be renewing his contract with PSG.
If you are an FC Barcelona fan, you might find it hard to digest, but the current financial situation of the club is quite bad, and Neymar knows it. The 28-year-old Brazilian sensation is happy with his inclusion in Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). According to Footmercato, Neymar has already informed Leonardo (the club’s sporting director) about his decision of renewing the contract.
But, it turns out that PSG may not give Neymar a new deal. The French club wants Kylian Mbappe to extend his contract at all costs, as giants like Liverpool, Juventus, Real Madrid, and Barcelona are waiting for his contract to end in 2022. PSG is already giving Neymar an annual salary of 30 million euros, and Neymar will certainly want a similar contract.
There is no doubt, that the Brazilian star plays an important role in the French club. Neymar is currently off the team due to his injury, and that will be a big loss for PSG in their Champions League matches. Back in 2017, when Neymar signed a record-shattering transfer from FC Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain, many people had their concerns over 222 million euros ($263m). But, since then, the Brazilian Forward has played 91 games, scored a total of 72 goals, and provided 45 brilliant assists.
So, if Neymar is really going to sign a new contract at PSG, that will mean there is almost no chance he will return to Barca.
