NEYMAR is reportedly close to agreeing a contract extension to remain at Paris Saint-Germain.
The Brazil star has been linked with a return to Barcelona but this appears to end the prospect of moving back to Spain.
Neymar is close to agreeing a new deal with Paris Saint-Germain
According to Mundo, Neymar is closing in on signing a new deal with his current contract expiring in 2022.
Neymar was close to leaving the French giants in recent seasons with a return to Barca on the cards.
But the 28-year-old forward has now established a strong relationship with sporting director Leonardo.
PSG have reportedly focused their attention on keeping Neymar at the club and offered him a lucrative contract.
Neymar has made 12 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring nine goals.
The PSG star has been out with an ankle injury since last month and recently returned to training.
New boss Mauricio Pochettino will be boosted both by the return of Neymar to his squad and the prospect of him penning a long-term deal at the club.

Neymar has been persistently linked with a move back to Barcelona but appears to have cooled his interest in a return.
Barca’s financial struggles and Lionel Messi’s attempt to leave may have impacted Neymar’s decision to remain in France.
And it appears he is now ready to commit his long-term future to PSG as last season’s finalists chase their first Champions League triumph.
