Official: Neymar Signs Extension With Paris Saint-Germain Until 2025

Neymar Jr. will spend the prime of his career in a Paris Saint-Germain kit as the club announced on Saturday that the Brazil international signed a contract extension through 2025.

“I’m very happy, very happy to be extending my contract with Paris until 2025,” Neymar told PSGTV. “The truth is that I’m very happy to be staying here for four more years, to be a part of the club’s project, to try and win titles, to try and achieve our biggest dream which is the Champions League.”

The news isn’t all that surprising. Supporters have been teased for weeks, if not months, that an extension was close to being official but seeing Neymar hold up the PSG shirt with “2025” on the back was certainly satisfying. It also checks off a major item on PSG’s to-do list for this summer and now, they’ll be able to concentrate on Kylian Mbappé’s contract extension and strengthening the squad.

A lot has changed since 2017, when Neymar arrived from FC Barcelona in that blockbuster transfer, and it hasn’t always been easy but the journey has been worth it as he explained.

“Things have happened that should not have happened,” Neymar said. “We had fights, a few sad times, but overall, the evolution has been very positive. I am happy, I am proud to be part of the history of Paris Saint-Germain.”

During his tenure in the French capital, Neymar has recorded 85 goals and 51 assists in 112 appearances for PSG. He’s already one of the club’s top 10 scorers of all time and with three more seasons to look forward to, he’s likely to add to the nine trophies he’s already won with the UEFA Champions League being the most coveted.
