PSG ready new Neymar deal worth £640k per week
PSG are preparing a new deal for Brazilian attacker Neymar.
The French club are ready to offer him a whooping £640,000 a week to extend his current deal which ends in 2022.
The 28-year old is certainly one of PSG’s top on-field assets and has been influencial in the club’s recent success since joining from Barcelona.
Recent reports have linked him to Real Madrid and Barcelona, some even say there’s already a verbal agreement between Neymar and his former employers Barcelona.
Neymar played for Barcelona between 2013 and 2017 before joining PSG for a world record fee of £198million.
Most of his time in France has been marred by controversies and injuries — but he continues to deliver the goods whenever he’s fit and happy to play.
His current deal is is worth around £600,000 per week, almost double of the next highest earner at PSG Kylian Mbappe, who earns around £375,000 weekly.
Money, they say makes the world go round.
Well, money makes football players switch teams too.
Barcelona need money to bring back Neymar, ‘the prodigal son’ back to his home.
PSG have lots of money and are attempting to use it to tie down him down to a contract extension.
Neymar has been involved in 28 goals this season, 18 goals and 10 assists.
If signed, the deal will put all rumors of him going to Barcelona to rest and keep him at PSG until 2025.
