Man Utd to challenge Real Madrid for Neymar

Gareth Bale Karim Benzema

Brazil forward Neymar is focusing on getting fully fit in time for next month's World Cup following foot surgery but his future at Paris St Germain looks increasingly uncertain.

Neymar, who signed from Barcelona in August for a world-record fee of €222million, may have been sidelined with a broken metatarsal since February, but 19 goals and 13 assists in 20 appearances earned him the honour.

"I am very touched and very happy with our season".

The Paris club are concerned about Financial Fair Play rules and may need to sell Neymar to balance their books. The Spanish media are against French clubs and they've been talking about things since October.

Neymar stunned the football world a year ago by quitting Barcelona to join PSG for a colossal £198 million.

"The best come to Madrid and I would love to play with Neymar", he said after playing his 450th game for the club in a 6-0 thrashing of Celta Vigo.

However, the 26-year-old had suggested that he would not leave PSG this summer, despite persistent rumours.Barca legend Andres Iniesta has admitted that it is hard to see Neymar returning to Camp Nou in the future.


Al-Khelaifi has responded to rumours this weekend linking the Brazil worldwide with Real Madrid and Manchester United.

The 23-year-old has generally impressed whenever used by PSG, though he hasn't quite been an established starter week in, week out for the French giants.

According to reports, Neymar has told his teammates that he won't return to PSG after the World Cup in Russian Federation. "There will be changes for sure, but I am not thinking about that now".

The Parc Des Princes side are also planning to make their loan deal for Monaco's Kylian Mbappe a permanent transfer at £165m.

Now with Chelsea, Hazard won it in 2009 and 2010 when with Lille.

The 26-year-old also explained that this has been the campaign in which he has played the least first-team football because coach Unai Emery wanted to keep him fresh for their key fixtures. Click any of these buttons below!
