Brazil forward, Neymar, has spoken of his desire to stay at Paris Saint-Germain for next season and join forces with teammates and manager Thomas Tuchel to try winning the Champions League title for the first time for the club.
Neymar’s declaration has cooled any suggestion about being interested to advance his interest of returning to Barcelona. The 28 year old has contract with PSG until June 2022, but his stay for 2020/2021 season is now a certainty.
Neymar is ambitious to win his second Champions League title following his first feat in 2014/15 with Barcelona . He also won two Laliga titles, one Super Cup and FIFA World Club Club Cup with Barca before joining PSG in August 2017 for world record €222m transfer fee.
With PSG, the Brazilian has won three Ligue 1 titles, and recently failed to win to win the Champions League when the Tuchel’s men lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich in the final of the 2019/2020 edition.
“I am staying at PSG next season. And with the ambition to return to the Champions League final, this time to win it,” Neymar said in an interview with PSG’s official magazine.
“I like this idea of doing everything to leave my name in the history books of my club. If people were doubting the presence of PSG
as a great European club, those doubts died in Lisbon.
Neymar added: “We left this city with the feeling of being renewed and confidence in our capacity to win it one day to write an even greater history.”
By returning from Lisbon, in the plane on the way back, we were already excited to see each other again in Paris. I will never forget what we shared with this squad. It has formed a family and I am proud.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
