Despite the constant rumors over his future, Neymar has revealed that he is happy at Paris Sanit-Germain and wants to commit his future to the club.
For the first time, the Brazilian has revealed that he intends to stay in Paris despite consistent reports linking him with a move away from the French capital. Neymar scored a brace from the Penalty spot on Sunday when his PSG side visited Lorient.
However, the forward’s goals were only but a consolation as his team suffered a shock 3-2 loss to Ligue 1 strugglers Lorient, who are currently in the relegation zone.
Although they suffered a disappointing defeat, PSG did have something to celebrate as Neymar revealed he is happy in Paris despite constant exit talks.
“I am happy today. I am truly happy,” said the Brazilian, who turns 29 years old on Friday, 5th February in an interview with TF1.
“Things have changed a lot. I can’t exactly explain why. But today, I am feeling good. I have adapted. I am calmer and I am happier. I want to stay at PSG.”
Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe’s future has also been a subject of speculation around Parc des Princes as little progress has been made on extending the Frenchman’s contract.
Now, his teammate has called on him to stay put at the club also.
“I also want Kylian to stay. We want PSG to be a great team. I want to continue to play football and be happy, that is the most important thing,” Neymar added.
“With Kylian Mbappe, we have a relationship of brothers. I am the eldest. We really like to play together.”
“I want to get the best out of him. He’s a golden boy. I call him ‘Golden Boy’ because he’s really golden. He has a huge heart. As a footballer, you know what he is worth, but even off the pitch he is amazing.”
“He is smiling, happy, he knows how to have fun. We are very similar and we have to be happy to be 100 percent.”
Great news for Paris Saint-Germain faithfuls!
