Staying put at PSG: Neymar extends Paris St-Germain contract to 2025

Dubai: Neymar has agreed a contract extension with Paris St-Germain until 2025, the reigning French champions announced on Saturday.

The world’s most expensive player has claimed three Ligue 1 titles with the Parisians but has yet to win the Champions League since arriving in 2017 from Barcelona for 222 million euros in what remains the most expensive transfer in history.

"I'm really pleased to continue my adventure at Paris Saint-Germain," the 29-year-old said in a club statement. "I'm very happy in Paris, and proud to be part of this squad, to work with these players, a great coach and to be part of the history of this club."

There has frequently been speculation in Spain that Barcelona wanted to re-sign him, but Neymar's decision to prolong his deal in the French capital is not a surprise as he has looked increasingly settled at PSG since last season when he helped the club reach the Champions League final.
