Neymar Jr eyeing Manchester United switch
The Brazilain looks set to leave PSG this summer
Neymar Jr ‘wants to join Manchester United and will not depart PSG for any other team,’, giving Erik Ten Hag a major transfer boost. He also allegedly won’t go away from Paris Saint-Germain for an alternative team.
Neymar, 31, reportedly realises he has no prospect of staying at the Parc des Princes this summer, according to Foot Mercato. And he is now entirely committed to getting a transfer to Old Trafford.
Last week, L’Equipe reported that United and PSG were currently in advanced discussions over a transfer for the most expensive player in the world. Neymar joined the French team in 2017 from Barcelona for £192 million.
But PSG wants to part ways with him this summer following 118 goals and five championships. It has been widely reported that United are searching for a new attacker to support Marcus Rashford.
Erik Ten Hag, the boss, acknowledged this week that he needs additional weapons. Neymar, though, is eager to sign with Manchester United and has no interest in leaving PSG for a different club.

The veteran will likely play on the left wing if he joins United. Neymar is equally adept at functioning as a free-roaming No10, as he proved with Brazil. Not the only famous person planning to depart the French capital in the summer is him.
He told the Times: “What we need besides Marcus Rashford is one extra player with scoring abilities.
Lionel Messi, a national hero of Argentina, is also set to leave when his contract expires the following month.The World Cup champion has received proposals to play in Saudi Arabia and the United States. Messi and Robert Lewandowski are being paired in the attack by Barcelona in an effort to lure him to return.
There is no denying that Neymar is one of the most talented players in the world, and if United were to sign him, he would serve as their most inventive player functioning behind the striker.
He is the kind of player who can feed attackers passes to score goals and could serve as an attacking midfielder in Bruno Fernandes’ stead.
Due to the fact that he is a football legend like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, his signing will also bring in a big profit. But his injuries will be the main source of worry, casting doubt on his dependability in games that matter.
