Neymar will reportedly stay at Paris Saint-Germain for at least another season, after negotiations for his return to Barcelona collapsed.
According to French publication, L’Equipe, the Brazilian has decided to remain with the Ligue 1 champions, after learning that the deal didn’t scale through.
The report said PSG President, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, and the club’s Sporting Director, Leonardo Araujo, later confirmed that the forward would be staying in France in a separate interview.
Barcelona chiefs have been in Paris negotiating for the player’s return to Camp Nou for days, but Leonardo disclosed on Friday, that the Catalans were yet to meet their demands for the player.
Other reports say both sides agreed on Neymar’s value, but could not find a common ground on payment, as the Spanish side proposed paying in three installments, while PSG wanted a one-time cash.
It now remain to be seen if Barcelona would return for the player at the end of the season, as it was speculated that they did not want to pay any huge cash for the player now, so as not to flout the Financial Fair Play (FFP) rule.
