Neymar open to €400m Manchester United move

Neymar would be open to a summer move to Manchester United, Don Balon claims.

It has been widely reported that the Brazil star is not happy with life at Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid had been tipped as favourites to lure him away from Parc des Princes.

However, the Spanish outlet now claims that Neymar is open to the idea of moving to Old Trafford, with the Red Devils seemingly willing to shell out the €400 million that PSG would demand for their star player.

Manchester United have been tipped to lure Neymar away from PSG when the transfer window reopens.

The Brazil international moved to Ligue 1 from Barcelona back in the summer for a huge £200million.

However, reports have claimed the 26-year-old is far from happy with life at the club.

Express Sport understands Real Madrid are seriously considering whether to launch a bid for Neymar this summer.

But Spanish outlet Don Balon claim Neymar could move to Manchester United instead.

The Red Devils have ruled out signing any more forwards.

But that could change amid uncertainty over the futures of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

Speaking today, Mourinho refused to give either player any assurances over their future.

“If I was you I would go with why [Romelu] Lukaku plays every match, why [Nemanja] Matic plays every match. You always go to the one,” he said:

“The answer is if you want what I call dry answers, I have dry answers and a dry answer is only 11 can start the match and we are 22 [players]. Is just football.

“We cannot have 11 players, it would be amazing also economically for the football clubs to have only 11 players and to play always with the same 11, no injuries, no suspension, no fatigue and nothing, it would be better for everyone to have only 11 players but is not possible.

“So in every club, at every level, from the top of the world to the amateur football clubs, you need more than 11 players and only 11 can start, is as simple as that, there’s nothing I can do.

“Is the same answer. Only 11 can start.

“The same questions you are doing to me, you should do the same questions to every other manager because everyone has players in the same situation.”

Don Balon say Neymar has two reasons for considering a United move.

He reportedly finds the club to have a unique appeal to it, and deems them capable of challenging Europe’s elite for silverware.

Also, he is said to be interested in playing under Jose Mourinho and alongside Paul Pogba
