Neymar wants to create Champions League history at PSG

Neymar of Paris Saint-Germain looks on during the UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg match between Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain at Signal Iduna Park on February 18, 2020 in Dortmund, Germany.

Neymar insists he wants to stay at Paris Saint-Germain and create history by guiding them to their first ever Champions League triumph.

PSG have dominated Ligue 1 in recent years, save for a single league win for Monaco, but their owners have injected significant funds into the club hoping to dominate Europe, too, wth the Champions League now representing a 'holy grail' of sorts.

The acquisition of Neymar was meant to be the signing which propelled them into Europe's elite, but it took them to the 2019/20 season to reach as late as the semi-final, which they would win to progress to their first ever final.

They took on Bayern, who had previously humiliated Chelsea and Barcelona on their way to the final.

It was a tight affair but the German champions emerged victorious after a 1-0 win against PSG, with insult being added to injury for the latter as the winning goal was scored by their former player, Kingsley Coman.

Neymar failed to make much of an impact in the final, and has been continually linked with a move back to Barcelona pretty much since he made the move from the Camp Nou.

For him, though, his wish is to make history with PSG, as he shoots down speculation of a transfer away.

"I am staying at PSG next season," the Brazilian told PSG Le Mag.

"I remain and with the ambition to return to the final of the Champions League, this time to win it. I like this idea of doing everything to leave my name in the history books of my club."

PSG are among a number of clubs who have been linked with a sensational swoop for Lionel Messi in the last few days, which would see the Argentine once again partner Neymar in attack after their hugely succession union at Barcelona.
