Ligue 1 Leonardo wants to keep both but knows it’s not easy
Paris Saint-Germain are following their plan with Neymar. Mauricio Pochettino‘s arrival will change some of their objectives, but the club’s desire to extend Neymar‘s contract, and Kylian Mbappe‘s too, remains.
Both see their current deals end in 2022, and the club are keen for both to stay. They are, however, clear that their priority is the Brazilian.
Leonardo has already made it clear that he wants to renew both players’ contracts, knowing that PSG have two of the very best players in the world on their books.
The club have put Neymar on the market in the past, but the situation has changed dramatically since then. He is no longer forcing an exit as he has tried to before and, at 28, he’s in the best form of his career.
Pochettino’s arrival brought rumours that Dele Alli would follow him, with the Englishman not wanted by Jose Mourinho and due to him having shone under Pochettino at Tottenham.
The Argentine hasn’t closed the door on his arrival, but his signing would likely lead to more changes and it would only add further complications to their plan to have Neymar, Mbappe, and Lionel Messi in the same team.
