While everything is complete on the conditions of an extension to PSG, Neymar is obviously not ready to formalize the thing as long as the club of the capital is still in the race in the Champions League. But it would be especially in the perspective of waiting for the proposal of FC Barcelona.
Passion Neymar. The pro-Catalan press is still burning with desire for the Brazilian, whom he has hoped to see return every summer for 4 years now. Will it be the right one this time? There is hope if we believe the latest information from Sport. Indeed, the daily explains that Neymar voluntarily postpones the signing of his contract extension with PSG while waiting to see what FC Barcelona is likely to offer him.
In addition, the course of PSG in the Champions League is another key element. If he were to be eliminated on Tuesday night against Manchester City, then he would be getting closer to a start, ensures Sport. In any case, Barça must wait for the end of the Parisian adventure in Europe to accelerate discussions with the 29-year-old. The Catalan club believe they can be able to retain Messi and welcome Neymar.
No reason to hurry for Neymar
For the Brazilian, under contract until 2022, things are rather simple. He knows that an agreement for a contract extension until 2026 with the same salary conditions has been negotiated with PSG, which guarantees him a serene future on the side of the French capital. But he has no reason to rush to sign him, just to see what Barça can do.
An elimination from PSG tonight could encourage him to get closer to his former club faster than expected. A qualification and he would wait to know the end of the European epic to decide. More than ever, it is Neymar who has the cards in hand and who can give the next summer transfer window a more bombastic turn.
