Neymar Jr.’s name is linked to the Premier League and Saudi Arabia. However, it seems the Brazilian player will remain with Paris Saint-Germain, where he’s under contract until 2025.
L’Equipe reported on Monday that Neymar welcomes the arrival of Luis Enrique as PSG’s next manager. The two were together at FC Barcelona, winning the UEFA Champions League trophy in 2015.

Furthermore, the French media outlet notes that it doesn’t appear that the 31-year-old is keen on leaving PSG. Neymar staying with the French giants is a feeling reportedly shared by Enrique, who wants to see the Brazilian continue with the 2022-23 Ligue 1 champions.
Marquinhos gave an update on the health of Neymar while also noting his desire to see his compatriot stay with PSG despite the rumors. Neymar suffered a season-ending ankle injury in February, but it seems the forward will be ready to start the 2023-24 season, with Enrique leading the charge.
“Today, he is focused in football, quietly trying to come back,” Marquinhos said. “Afterwards, I don’t know what will become of his life either. In the market, we know that there is a lot of talk on both sides and since I’m far away, I prefer to be careful when talking about whether to stay or not.
“It also fits much choice and privacy for each one. As a partner, friend, being selfish, I want him to stay with me at PSG because he is a great player and friend.”
