PSG 'demand more than £92m for Neymar transfer this summer', but hope to tie Brazilian down to new contract

POTENTIAL SUITORS will reportedly have to pay more than £92million if they want to sign Neymar next summer, despite the Brazilian being set to have just a year left on his deal.

The Brazilian has consistently been linked with a return to Barcelona over the last two years.

But ahead of a critical year for the Ligue 1 champions, club chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi is in confident mood.

Despite Neymar's contract situation, L'Equipe claim that it will take more than £92million to prise the 28-year-old away from Parc des Princes next summer.

And this asking price will force cash-strapped Barca to look elsewhere, as they feebly try to strengthen their squad and persuade Lionel Messi to stay.

Fellow star Kylian Mbappe is also set to be out of contract in 2022.

But Al-Khelaifi, 47, believes that both of his stars want to stay.

He told RMC Sport: "We have begun to talk with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

"The discussions will remain confidential but I am very confident.

"They both want to stay with us at PSG."

Neymar himself also echoed this sentiment.

He said: "I am very happy here, in Paris.

"I am very happy at the club, with my team-mates. The idea of leaving has not crossed my mind.

"We need to talk. We have a very good relationship, I am very happy and we will see what happens in the future."
