“I am happy today, really happy. Things have changed a lot. I cannot explain it, but today I feel fine. I have adapted. I have become calmer and happier. I want to stay in Paris,” the Brazilian said in his interview with the French channel TF1.
Neymar earlier wanted to return to Barcelona, but the latter did not pay the financial value that Paris requested for the Brazilian’s trip to continue in France.
Neymar sent a message to his colleague Kylian Mbappe, who has not yet renewed his contract with Paris. The last contract expires in 2022.
“I also want Mbappe to stay,” the former Santos star added. “We want Paris to be a great team. I want to continue playing football and be happy, that’s the most important thing.”
Mbabi and I love to play together. I want to bring out the best he has. He is a golden boy. I call him the golden boy because he is really golden. ”
Neymar recalled the disappointment in the 2020 UEFA Champions League Final, which he lost to Bayern Munich with a goal.
Neymar, 28, said: “I cried. I really wanted to return the cup to France. Unfortunately we did not win, but we will have other opportunities and we will qualify for the final and win the title.”
Neymar participated in 101 matches with Paris, scoring 83 goals and sending 46 assists.
He won ten titles with the team.
