Neymar has confirmed that he will be staying at Paris Saint-Germain next season and won’t be heading back to Barcelona.

The Catalan giants have again been linked with trying to bring the Brazilian back to the Camp Nou, although Bartomeu admitted long ago they couldn’t afford it and PSG don’t want to sell.

Neymar has now announced that he will play for the Ligue 1 side next season with the aim of trying to land the Champions League.

“I am staying at PSG next season! And with the ambition to return to the Champions’ League final, this time to win it. I like this idea of doing everything to leave my name in the history books of my club. If people were doubting the presence of PSG as a great European club, those doubts died in Lisbon. We left this city with the feeling of being renewed and confidence in our capacity to win it one day to write an even greater history.

“By returning from Lisbon, in the plane on the way back, we were already excited to see each other again in Paris! I will never forget what we shared with this squad. It has formed a family and I am proud.”
