Nasser Al-Khelaïfi attacked Neymar directly for the first time, suggesting a forced departure this summer. Neymar did not like, and for the penalty, he extends two years at PSG!
The flat calm does not exist in Paris Saint-Germain. And on no dossier. While the capital club has achieved the feat of extending Kylian Mbappé’s contract and giving back a smile to his fans, it is the name of the future coach that is currently occupying the minds. Zinedine Zidane ended up saying no to Qatar despite copious offers and intense forcing, and Christophe Galtier is getting a little closer to the Parc des Princes bench every day. But there is another file that seemed extinct that has re-ignited in recent weeks: that of Neymar. PSG number 10 was not satisfied during the first 5 years of his contract. And the extension was obviously the drop of water that overflowed the vase on the Doha side, where it is estimated that the Brazilian is no longer 100% focused on the Paris project.
End of the state of grace for Neymar at PSG

An impression confirmed by Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, who for the first time hinted that the talks were on the subject of Neymar’s future. Half-word confessions, but which already mean a lot in a club where stars like the former Barcelona man have been pampered in a way that is probably exaggerated. « We cannot talk about these questions in the media, some will come and others will leave, but these are private negotiations. He who wants to stay in his comfort, who does not want to fight, will stay aside ”Swayed the PSG president, who was directly questioned about the Neymar case.
A rare verbal attack that provoked a rather unexpected double reaction due to its magnitude. First of all, it was the Neymar clan that surprised itself with this exit signed by Nasser Al-Khelaïfi. The PSG number 10 has already said that he feels good in Paris, and that he does not see himself changing his mind. This is always the case, according to his relatives, who confided in L’Equipe about this. « Neymar is motivated by the Parisian project and wants to contribute. He has no plans to leave the capital Said his entourage, who found the Paris SG boss’s speech very harsh against the Brazilian.
Le 1er juillet, table coup for PSG
Neymar pushed towards the start, it is good to be a goal of Luis Campos for this former. It will obviously be complicated, knowing the gold contract available to the captain of the Seleçao. The extension signed a little over a year ago risks it, so to stay across the throat. And yet, it’s not the hardest to swallow, and it’s the second reaction to Nasser Al-Khelaïfi’s departure, at least in timing. This Thursday, L’Equipe thus reveals that Neymar has not only extended his contract until June 2025 as announced at the signing of his new lease. In fact, PSG had two options for an additional year, and those will be sent automatically in a week, on July 1. As a result, Neymar will be under contract with Paris until June 2027, with obviously the abnormal salary that will go with it. In consequence, it will be almost impossible to force him to leave, since PSG still owes him 130 million euros in salary over the next five years. How better to understand why Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, who decided to tackle bling-bling, wants to part with it. But with less than an arm’s length and an untenable situation, Neymar will become Paris SG’s unbeatable total on 1 July.
