Paris St Germain striker Neymar has pledged his future to the Ligue 1 champions, saying contract renewal talks at the club are no longer an issue.
PSG broke the world transfer fee record by spending 222 million euros ($265.60 million) in 2017 to bring in Neymar from La Liga giants Barcelona.
The Brazil international has since won three league titles, two Coupes de France and was also part of the PSG team that reached the Champions League final last season.
The 29-year-old, whose contract expires next June, has called the Parisian club his “home”.
“I don’t think it’s a topic anymore. I obviously feel very comfortable at home at PSG,” Neymar told TNT Sports Brazil on Tuesday.
“I feel happier than before.”
PSG president Nasser al-Khelaïfi said Neymar and striker Kylian Mbappé, whose contract also expires at the same time, had “no reason to leave” the club.
“I think next year Neymar will be at Paris Saint-Germain and he will stay there for a long time,” he told Sky Sports.
PSG reached the Champions League semi-finals despite a 1-0 home defeat to holders Bayern Munich on Tuesday, as they progressed on away goals after an aggregate result of 3 -3.
