Neymar makes vow as he confirms he will stay at PSG for at least another season

Neymar has vowed to stay at Paris Saint-Germain for another season and “do everything” to write his name in the club’s history books by winning the Champions League.

The Brazilian came close to doing just that earlier this month but narrowly missed out on a maiden crown for the French outfit.

A 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in the final left Neymar in tears after the match as his personal wait for another European Cup stretched to five years.

The 28-year-old’s future has once again been the subject of speculation this summer, a year on from the forward making it clear he wished to return to former club Barcelona.

But in a interview with the official PSG magazine, Neymar insists he is fully committed to the task in Paris, for one more attempt at least.

“I’m staying at PSG next season! And with the ambition to return to the Champions League final, this time to win it,” he said.

“I like the idea of doing everything to leave my name in the history books of my club.”

Neymar is still under contract at PSG until 2022 but his future could be under closer scrutiny next summer when he approaches his final 12 months at the club.

However rather than push for a move back to Barcelona like he did a year ago, Neymar has reportedly been trying to tempt their talisman Lionel Messi to the Parc des Princes.

Messi has informed Barcelona he wants to leave the club with PSG one of the leading candidates for his signature.

And according to reports in Spain, both Neymar and PSG teammate Angel di Maria have contacted Messi personally in a bid to sell him on a switch to France, rather than Man City who are currently the favourites to land the forward.

Neymar’s situation off the pitch has also had tongues wagging too following his split from sponsors Nike two years early, who also provide PSG’s kit.

He has turned his back on the £78.6million deal he had with the sportswear giant, who he has been in partnership with since he was just 13.

Nike have sponsored all of Neymar’s clubs: Santos, Barcelona, and PSG; as well as the Brazil national team, but reports suggest he will now switch to rivals Puma.
