Neymar: PSG star puts slight dent in Manchester United transfer plans

Grant SmithMay 15, 2018

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Premier League giants Manchester United have reportedly contacted Brazilian superstar Neymar over a mega move to Old Trafford.

"I don't know if they are negotiating for Neymar", Zidane said, via Mundo Deportivo.

Despite only moving to France past year from Barcelona, Neymar has been linked with a move away from Paris-Saint-Germain in recent weeks.

In an interview published on Friday, the Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain striker said treatment has worked "but there is always that fear of it (the injury) coming back". I don't want to talk about anything at the moment.

The president said that he was "2000 per cent" sure Neymar will not leave the club in the next transfer window.

Neymar recently resumed some training and ball work in a bid for World Cup in Russian Federation.

The same story says that Real Madrid are also in the race to sign the attacker, who signed for PSG from FC Barcelona only previous year.

"We played against the second best French team in Ligue 1 on the Sunday and then in the Coupe de France quarterfinals on the Wednesday".

Despite his grievances, the speculation will not go away as both United and Real are reportedly willing to match Neymar's £30million-a-year salary that he is now earning in Paris.

Neymar beat two of his PSG teammates to the prize, voted for by his fellow players - Edinson Cavani, Ligue 1's leading scorer this season with 28 goals, and Kylian Mbappe were also nominees, along with Marseille winger Florian Thauvin. Selecao is also anxiously waiting for their talisman's return, as head coach Tite will announce the 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup next Monday.

He is well on the road to recovery and should be fit to play for Brazil at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

'I don't know if we are negotiating for Neymar. I just want to see him play football and be happy playing football.
