Manchester United are reportedly one of the only clubs with the stomach for Neymar’s contract, and Paris Saint-Germain are willing to sell.
Neymar, 31, is one of the biggest names in the sport, boasting more than 100 goals for former club Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, as well as 77 goals in 124 international matches for Brazil – equaling Pelé for the country’s national goalscoring record. .
While his resume as the greatest player of all time is assured, Neymar has once again struggled with injuries this season, with a serious ankle injury in February bringing his campaign to an early end.
After becoming the most expensive transfer in the history of world football in 2017, Neymar holds all the cards on when and if he will leave Paris, but if he decides to pursue a new challenge, he has fans in England.
According to Foot Mercato, United have been monitoring Neymar’s situation for “several months” and have made inquiries about him around the January window, but will not be able to progress any negotiations until the sale of the club is complete.
The report states that it is believed that a number of high-profile stars would be brought to Old Trafford in the event of a sale, with Neymar near the top of that list.
Meanwhile, The Mirror add that Chelsea are also interested in the Brazilian talent, but the final decision will be made by Neymar, whose contract includes a player option to extend until 2026.
