Neymar's ended the possibility of a return to Barcelona by signing a new four-year contract at Paris Saint-Germain.

It'll keep the world's most expensive footballer with the French side until at least 2025.

“I’m very happy, very happy to be extending my contract with Paris until 2025,” the Brazilian attacker told PSG’s official website.

“The truth is that I’m very happy to be staying here for four more years, to be a part of the club’s project, to try and win titles, to try and achieve our biggest dream which is the Champions League.

"So I’m happy to be staying at the club, to be a part of it, and to be extending my contract.

“My goal when I came [here] was to help get PSG to the top, among the very best, and we are getting close,” he said. “We are gaining more and more experience to help us negotiate these types of games, to know how to play in the Champions League.

"And Paris is on the right track, we are getting closer and closer to the taste of winning the Champions League. I’m sure we can do it.”

PSG’s chief executive, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, said of Neymar's renewal:

“The core of our ambitious project to grow PSG is the heart, talent and dedication of our players. I am proud that Neymar Jr has reaffirmed his long-term commitment to the PSG family through to 2025, and will continue to delight fans.

"We are very happy to see him continue as part of our project and to be alongside us for many years to come.”
