This week kicked off with an absolute bang for Paris Saint-Germain. Despite falling in the Champions League Final recently to Bayern Munich, the morale remains high around the club. Especially after Neymar's latest statement saying he's ready to return to PSG next season.

 

While he'll always be rumored for a potential return to Barcelona, Neymar said on Monday morning that he's staying with PSG, and is ready to make another run at bringing home a CL title with the club. 

"I am staying at PSG next season," Neymar said in an exclusive interview with the club's magazine. "And with the ambition to return to the Champions League final, this time to win it.

 

"I like this idea of doing everything to leave my name in the history books of my club. If people were doubting the presence of PSG as a great European club, those doubts died in Lisbon. We left this city with the feeling of being renewed and confidence in our capacity to win it one day to write an even greater history."

 

Last offseason, word flew all over the world that Neymar was on the brink of a return to the Camp Nou to be reunited with Lionel Messi at Barcelona. However, with Messi essentially having one foot out the door right now, the Catalonian giants are in a bit of a pickle. 

 

That's not PSG's worry, though, as Neymar made it clear he won't be suiting up for anyone else once the new Ligue 1 season gets underway.

 

He wants to make history with PSG and will do everything he can to get back to the Champions League Final and help the club lift the trophy this time around. Get excited, PSG fans.
