Paris Saint-Germain signed Neymar from Barcelona for a world-record fee of €222m last summer. After one season with the French capital club, reports already started to surface that he could beon his way out of Parc des Princes.
According to Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo (and everyone else on the planet), Real Madrid are one of the clubs looking at the option of bringing the forward back to La Liga.
However, Madrid president Florentino Perez is unhappy with the suggestions that Neymar would be a “fiasco”, if the Spanish capital club decides to sign the player. Perez is pretending to not listen to the negative responses on what will happen if the 12-time European champions sign the PSG star.
Israeli super-agent Pini Zahavi is Neymar’s intermediary and he has kept other options open if Madrid decide against signing the Brazil international. Zahavi has approached Manchester United and has already initiated talks with Jose Mourinho’s side regarding the former Santos man.
If Madrid decide against signing Neymar, then he wants to join a club that will help him improve his chances of winning the Ballon d’Or.
Mundo Deportivo does not mention if Manchester United would be interested in signing Neymar this summer, it’s more about the agent trying make them part of his plan. The Red Devils already signed Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in January and Mourinho has ruled out new additions to his side’s attack in the summer.
Manchester United are the back-up option, but even they may not be so convinced.
