Neymar's PSG contract includes secret 'retirement' clause letting him return to Brazil when he is 34

NEYMAR can quit PSG for Brazil when he is 34, according to reports on his new contract.

The striker, 29, has already frustrated old Barcelona by extending his PSG deal until 2025.

And it's claimed the new arrangement gives Neymar the right to stay an extra year on top of that – then return to Brazil to wind down his career.

UOL say Neymar's main motivation in signing a contract extension with PSG is the expectation boss Mauricio Pochettino will spend big.

But Neymar also knows it would be difficult for other clubs – stricken financially by the coronavirus pandemic – to match the terms of his contract,

Barcelona, though, were said to feel "betrayed and used" by his decision.

They reportedly  sent representatives to the French capital to talk to him over a possible return.

But now Barca believe Neymar was always planning to remain with PSG.


Neymar is now keen for French World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe, 22, to lengthen his PSG contract.

And having won the Champions League with Barcelona in 2015, the South American superstar is hungry to achieve the same with the French giants.

PSG lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich in last year's final before exiting to Manchester City 4-1 on aggregate in this year's semis.
