Neymar said that he hopes to stay at Paris Saint-Germain beyond this season and wants Kylian Mbappe to also commit his future to the French champions.
Brazilian star Neymar is in discussions with PSG over a possible new contract, as his current deal is set to end in June 2022.
Neymar, who PSG made the world’s most expensive player with a 222-million-euro ($269 million) transfer from Barcelona in 2017, scored twice in Sunday’s surprise 3-2 loss at Lorient, the club’s first defeat under new coach Mauricio Pochettino.
He wants Mbappe who has been repeatedly linked with a possible move to Real Madrid and said he wanted time to “think” earlier this month to sign a new deal.
Mbappe has scored 16 goals in all competitions this season for PSG, with Neymar netting 13 times despite having a long spell out of the team with injury.
Sunday’s defeat saw PSG slip to the unusually low position of third in Ligue 1, three points behind leaders Lille.
