NEYMAR has entered contract discussions with Paris Saint-Germain.
But an extension to his deal could be disastrous news for Liverpool and their dreams of signing Kylian Mbappe.

The Brazilian superstar, 28, has entered the final 18 months of his contract, which expires in June 2022.
And work is already underway to keep him in the French capital.
PSG sporting director Leonardo confirmed that Neymar is happy to sign for a further five years.
That's despite being heavily linked with a return to struggling Barcelona, who are 5/1 leaders to re-sign Neymar before 2 February, 2021.
But, crucially, he wants the club to strengthen on the pitch AND assurances that Mbappe will stay at the Parc des Princes.
The Reds were 6/1 to sign the French forward only a few months ago.
But news of Neymar's demands have seen that figure drift to 9/1 with Betfair – just behind favourites Real Madrid at 7/1.

The European heavyweights are both huge admirers of the World Cup winner, who's scored 97 goals and provided 58 assists in just 132 competitive outings for PSG.
Mbappe's contract also has less than two years left to run but his future is far less certain.
There have been claims in the past that Mbappe is open to joining Liverpool and that Jurgen Klopp has personally spoken with the player.
However, a new deal for Neymar could leave the Reds searching elsewhere for their marquee signing.
