Neymar ended speculation about his future by signing a new four-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain last week. In the agreement between the two parties, there is an option to extend for an additional year.
Ginola told France Info: “Convincing Neymar to stay loyal, I think is a very good thing. However, winning matches with just one big star like Platini or Maradona doesn’t exist in modern football.”
“Therefore, I think that Neymar’s contract extension will not help PSG much if they can’t keep the likes of Kylian Mbappe. Neymar is 29 years old, his best years are behind him.”
This season, Neymar’s form has been unstable in part due to constant problems related to injuries, causing him to miss a total of 19 PSG matches. The 29-year-old striker has contributed 16 goals and 10 assists to the French capital team after 29 appearances.
