Neymar is seeking a new £1 million-per-week deal in order to stay with Paris Saint-Germain rather than leave for Real Madrid, if the latest rumours are to be believed.

The Sunday Times‘ Duncan Castles reported the Brazil international will use Real’s interest as leverage to secure an improved contract less than one season after agreeing to his deal with Les Parisiens (via Goal).

Per Goal, the 26-year-old earns £537,000 per week. L’Equipe reported PSG have denied the claims (via AS‘ Amalia Fra).

Speculation regarding Neymar’s future has run rampant of late, with multiple daily reports emerging since PSG’s last-16 exit from the UEFA Champions League. The Spanish press has done most of the speculating, with AS at the forefront. Marco Ruiz of that outlet even suggested a €400 million price tag―roughly £353 million―has already been set.

His father, Neymar Sr., acts as his agent, and he recently told reporters his son has a future in the French capital beyond the summer, per Sebastian Vargas Rozo of Sport. PSG have also maintained he’s not going anywhere, but those statements have not stopped the rumour mill from spinning.

Neymar’s time in France has been filled with controversy both on and off the pitch. COPA90 US took a look at how things have played out, noting controversy is nothing new for the Brazil international:
