Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed that Neymar will remain with the club beyond the end of his current deal which is due to expire in 2022 in a move that will see him stay at Parc des Princes until 2025.
The Brazil international played a key role in the French giants' run to the UEFA Champions League semifinals, but was unable to prevent the French giants from exiting the competition 4-1 over two legs.
Neymar, 29, scored crucial goals in the group stage wins over RB Leipzig, Manchester United and Istanbul Basaksehir to qualify Thomas Tuchel's men before the German was dismissed as coach and delivered two assists and a scintillating performance over two legs as titleholders Bayern Munich were disposed of after missing both legs vs. Barcelona.
"I'm very happy, very happy to be extending my contract with Paris until 2025" Neymar said. "The truth is that I'm very happy to be staying here for four more years, to be a part of the club's project, to try and win titles, to try and achieve our biggest dream which is the Champions League. So I'm happy to be staying at the club, to be a part of it and to be extending my contract."
The $270 million man has won nine pieces of domestic silverware with PSG already since his world-record transfer back in 2017 and the South American was also key in last summer's run to the Champions League final in Lisbon -- the Ligue 1 champions' maiden appearance.
Neymar extending his stay in Paris is expected to help fellow superstar Kylian Mbappe to make up his mind over a potential contract extension as the pair target European success in the French capital and rumors of a reunion with Lionel Messi continue to endure.
Goalkeeper Keylor Navas has already pledged his future to PSG until 2024 after signing a surprise recent one-year extension that rewarded him for some incredible performances against the likes of Barca and Bayern.
Despite Neymar's new deal, there is no guarantee that Les Parisiens are Ligue 1 champions this season with Lille OSC looking good to go all the way at the Championnat summit.

Off the pitch, and in Paris, Neymar signed a new contract extension with Paris Saint-Germain, keeping him at the Parc des Princes until 2025.
Both of these events are bad news for Barcelona's hopes of keeping Lionel Messi, as it damages the strength of Laporta's argument for him to stay.
The 32-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and has still not been made an offer to extend it by the club.
Laporta had seen signing Neymar as one of the major gateways to Messi's heart and had held talks with the Brazilian about a return move.
However, Neymar's new deal not only pledges his long-term future to PSG, but it closes the door on a return to the Camp Nou anytime soon.
Laporta still has other options on the table if he wants to impress Messi in the transfer market. Erling Haaland is his top target, though Borussia Dortmund would want around 200 million euros for him this summer.
This kind of money is way out of Barcelona's reach because of their financial hardship. The same goes for Real Madrid.
That leaves Sergio Aguero, whose exit from Manchester City this summer has been confirmed. He will be a free agent from June 30 and Laporta knows what a ploy the Argentine's arrival would be for Messi, his compatriot and good friend.

If there is one thing Neymar is, it is consistent. He let down Bartomeu's board and, apparently, Laporta's board as well this month when he held negotiations about a return to Barça. As reported last night by RAC1, the current Barça board feel betrayed by the Brazilian, news that has been widely echoed in the French press.
As reported by the Catalan radio station, a Barcelona representative had travelled to Paris to contact the PSG star, who showed his willingness to sign for Barça as he claimed that "the PSG project did not convince him".
However, on Saturday Neymar and Paris Saint-Germain officially announced the extension of the Brazilian's contract until 2025 plus an optional year, which means that any option for Neymar to join Barça is now ruled out. The Neymar to Camp Nou story is now longer, but the Messi to France story will begin if the Parisian side decide to sell Mbappé to Real Madrid.
This attitude shown by Neymar, according to RAC1, has angered the directors of the Blaugrana club, who have felt used by the Brazilian. Nothing that has not happened before.

Neymar has signed a new contract with Paris Saint-Germain that will take him through until 2025 at Parc des Princes, the club has confirmed.
The Brazilian, who moved to the Ligue 1 heavyweights from Barcelona in 2017 for a world-record transfer fee, has ended months of speculation over his future after renewing terms with Mauricio Pochettino's side.
It represents a major boon for the French outfit, who have dominated domestic football and seen increased European success since his arrival from Camp Nou four years ago.
"It is a great happiness to extend the adventure at Paris Saint-Germain," Neymar told the club's official website. "I am very happy in Paris.
"It is a real pride to be part of this group, to work with these players, this great coach and to be part of the history of this club. These are things that make me believe even more in this great project.
"Here I have grown as a person, as a human being and as a player, too. So I'm very happy to extend and I hope to win many more trophies here."
President Nasser Al-Khelaifi added: "The centre of gravity of our ambitious project to grow PSG lies in the heart, the talent and the total involvement of our players.
"I am proud to see Neymar reaffirm today his long-term commitment, until 2025, to the Paris Saint-Germain family, whose fans he will continue to delight.
"We are very happy to see him continue to be part of our project and to be by our side for many more years."
The 29-year-old has played over 100 games for les Parisiens since he made a €222 million (£193m/$270m) switch from Spain to France, helping to significantly raise the profile of PSG as they looked to establish themselves among Europe's historic elite.
In his first three seasons, he helped the club achieve two domestic trebles and a further double, winning the Ligue 1 title in each of those campaigns, while continuing to bolster their continental standing.
The announcement that Neymar will remain at the club beyond the end of his previous deal will undoubtedly please both club powerbrokers and fans, particularly as they look to take the final step to continental success and claim the Champions League.
Last season's final defeat to Bayern Munich represented the nearest that the club have come to the coveted trophy, and only fell short in the semi-finals this year against another well-financed club seeking a maiden triumph in the form of Manchester City.
As speculation continues to swirl over Kylian Mbappe's future in the capital, however, the news that the Brazilian is committed through the next half-decade - well into the autumn of his career - is a major boost for Pochettino, as he continues to attempt to build his own vision following a frustrated half-season at the helm.
