Neymar ‘refuses’ to leave PSG; Ligue 1 giants ‘need to reduce wage bill’

Neymar has ‘no desire’ to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer despite rumours linking him with a move away from the club.

Reports in France have suggested that PSG are willing to part company with the 30-year-old in a bid to bring down their escalating wage bill, which has sky rocketed after Kylian Mbappe performed a dramatic last-gasp U-turn to sign a new contract.

The Ligue 1 champions and former Champions League finalists have also been busy adding to their squad in this summer’s transfer market, poaching Nuno Mendes from Sporting CP on a permanent deal in addition to agreeing a €40m move for Porto midfielder Vitinha.

Neymar still has three years remaining on the contract extension he signed in 2021, and recently told Oh My Goal of his future plans: “It’s really true on my side that I want to stay.

“Nobody has told me anything, but on my side, it’s pretty clear I want to stay.”
