Neymar snubs new PSG deal
Neymar has shown once again he is desperate to leave Paris Saint-Germain after reports claimed he has turned down the offer of a new deal.
The Brazilian is under contract until the summer of 2022, and despite making it clear he wants to leave, PSG are said to have made an attempt to tie him to a new deal that would run through to 2025.
That would be an extension of three years, presumably on much more money, but Neymar is said to have turned it down flat as he pushes for a return to former club Barcelona.
With the January transfer window fast approaching, speculation over a move back to the Nou Camp is sure to ramp up once again although PSG have no intention of selling midway through the season.

A deal could happen at the end of the campaign, though, and Neymar might finally get his wish of a move back to the Catalan giants, but it could cost him.
It has been suggested the striker is willing to pay £17million out of his own pocket to ensure the deal happens.
A clause in his contract stipulates he will be allowed to leave for £153million once he is three years into his five-year deal, which he will be at the end of the season.
Barca are unwilling to go that high and Neymar hopes by agreeing to pay some of the fee himself it will be enough to get a deal over the line.
PSG were clearly trying their luck with the new deal offer to get the clause removed but Neymar was having none of it.
