Manchester United are in talks with PSG over the transfer of superstar Neymar. that writes L’Equipe. Several Premier League clubs have approached the French champions’ club bosses about the 31-year-old, but negotiations are most advanced with the Red Devils.

ManUnited have been on the hunt for a striker ever since Cristiano Ronaldo left the club at the end of 2022. Neymar doesn’t necessarily fit the profile of a striker, but he is versatile on offense. While the English are looking for a loan, PSG would like to sell Neymar.
The Selecao star should be loud L’Equipe have a prominent advocate in United’s ranks: his compatriot and national team-mate Casemiro is working internally for the attacker to be signed, it is said.
Neymar started his professional career at FC Santos and joined Barça in 2013 for €88m. After enjoying great success with the Catalans, he joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 for a record fee of €222m.
The striker is currently recovering from a serious ankle injury. He has 18 goals and 17 assists in 29 appearances this season.
