PSG IN NEYMAR CONTRACT TALKS

Paris Saint-Germain in talks over a contract extension for Neymar. The Ligue 1 club want him to stay and Neymar is happy at the club at the moment. A decision is yet to be made. Last night, Neymar scored a late penalty as Mauricio Pochettino’s side won Trophee des Champions after 2-1 win against Marseille.

According to a source close to the player, he’s under pressure to join a team that plays regularly in the UEFA Champions League.

“The idea is that it’s time for a fresh challenge. I won’t lie; the pressure is heavy on him. Contacts, friends and even the press have been saying try your self in a UEFAChampions League team. It’s something he will consider after his education programme in England is over,” he said.


LINGARD SET TO LEAVE MAN UTD?

Jesse Lingard’s representatives have held initial discussions with Nice over a loan move. An official approach is expected in the next week. Manchester United have yet to decide whether to allow Lingard to leave in this transfer window.
