PSG willing to up Neymar wages to £640,000-a-WEEK

PSG aim to ward off all rivals by upgrading Neymar's contract. Mundo Deportivo says PSG will offer Neymar a new contract worth a staggering £33million a year to persuade him to snub a Barcelona return. The Brazilian star has been regularly linked with a move back to the Nou Camp, where he played for Barcelona between 2013 and 2017 before a world-record £198m move to Paris. But PSG sporting director Leonardo will make an effort to tie him to the club until 2025 with a deal worth £640,000 a week. The new deal would bring Neymar's salary closer to those of the only two footballers in the world who earn more than him - Lionel Messi at Barcelona and Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus.
