Reports suggest that Brazil star Neymar has decided what his football future holds ahead of next season.
Neymar's 2021/22 campaign with Paris Saint-Germain has been marred by injuries and inconsistent performances, contributing to Les Parisiens' humiliating exit from the UEFA Champions League's round of 16 stage.
The forward, and the entire PSG team, failed to progress beyond the competition's first knockout stage for the third time in five seasons since his world-record arrival at the Parc des Princes.
Expectations were high for the French giants coming into the new season after they acquired the services of Gianluigi Donnarumma, Georginio Wijnaldum, Achraf Hakimi, Nuno Mendes, four-time UCL winner Sergio Ramos and seven-time Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi, but the Parisians have managed to claim only the Ligue 1 title.
Neymar, along with Lionel Messi, has borne the brunt of a lot of the fans' displeasure following their Champions League collapse, with some of the club's supporters even going as far as to jeer the 30-year-old in matches since that defeat to Real Madrid.
According to Brazilian journalist Isabela Pagliari, however, the forward is not going anywhere in the upcoming transfer window and plans to stay at least another year in the French capital.
"Neymar will stay at Paris Saint-Germain 100%, he has his contract and the World Cup in Qatar in November… He is staying," she said via Instagram, as per Sports Fuat.
It reiterates the sentiment of the former Barcelona man himself when fans walked out on the club early as the team secured a record 10th French top division title against Lens last month, after which he said: "I still have a contract with Paris Saint-Germain.
"I'm here for three more years, so stop [booing] or you'll need more air."
With the increasing likelihood of Kylian Mbappe's departure from the club, Neymar will probably have to do better than his 12 goals and eight assists this season as the onus will be more on him and Lionel Messi to lead PSG to their inaugural Champions League trophy.
