Neymar has dropped his biggest hint yet that he will renew his contract with PSG.
The Brazilian has been continuously linked with a return to former club Barcelona.
He told France Football: “I’ve always thought that great players were made to play together – and that’s clear between us two.
“Our roles were established when I arrived in Paris. Neymar is the centre of the project and I’m here to help him.
“[This is] because when I arrived at PSG, I was only an emerging star and I had to prove myself on the pitch.”
Former Brazil international Caio Ribeiro recently claimed Neymar is the best player on the planet.

He added: “Neymar knows how to do everything. He’s the best in the world.
“When he arrived in Paris, we realised everything he could do.
“He’s not a player simply for putting on a show and dancing when you’re winning 5-0. He also knows how to do spectacular things at 0-0.
“I don’t know if everyone is aware, but Neymar understands everything.
“He has an instinct that makes him know how to do everything straight away.”
Mbappe has also been linked with a move away from PSG amid interest from Real Madrid.
But the Spanish giants can’t afford to pay PSG’s £140million asking price for the 22-year-old.
Mbappe has scored 16 goals and made nine assists in 23 matches for PSG this season.
Neymar – who has 18 months left on his deal – has chipped in with 12 goals in 15 games.
