PSG are confident they can secure the long-term services of the Brazilian star despite his perpetual link with a return to Barcelona, but Neymar's decision won't come until April or May, reports ESPN FC's Julien Laurens.
Neymar, 27, has two-and-a-half years left on his current deal, and it's believed unofficial discussions between the player's father and PSG sporting director Leonardo have already taken place. Neymar's agent, Pini Zahavi, is also understood to be on good terms with Leonardo.
PSG will continue their pursuit of a Champions League title with a last-16, first-leg tie against Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park on Feb. 18. The eight-time Ligue 1 champs have endured their fair share of heartbreak in Europe's preeminent continental tournament, failing to progress beyond the quarterfinal round in each of the last seven tries, including three last-16 eliminations in the last three seasons.
Neymar has been in brilliant form for PSG since returning from injury, establishing a club record with goals in each of his last eight appearances in all competitions.
