Neymar, the Brazilian forward for Paris Saint-Germain, has confirmed that he is close to signing a new deal with the French club.
The 29-year-old has been linked with a return to Barcelona, whom he left in a record £198 million move to PSG in 2017.
Neymar is set to become a free agent in a year, which means he will be able to
negotiate a free transfer with foreign clubs starting in January.
However, earlier this week, the Brazilian confirmed that he has never been happier than he is this season,
and he has now hinted that a contract announcement could be on the way.
“We’re in talks with PSG,” he told RMC Sport. “There’s nothing pressing.”
“Everything is almost sorted; I’m at ease, and I’m genuinely happy here at PSG.”
In 24 appearances across all competitions this season, Neymar has 14 goals and nine assists.
PSG are still hoping to reach an agreement with Kylian Mbappe, another superstar forward whose deal expires in 14 months.
