Transfer Talk: Red Devils tell PSG to Neym their price
Manchester United are thought to be the new leaders in the race to land Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar.
A summer of change is afoot at PSG, with legendary forward Lionel Messi expected to depart the French capital on a free transfer.
The big spenders are plotting a change of club strategy which will see them build their team around Kylian Mbappe for years to come — a decision that L'Equipe claim Neymar is far from sold on.
The 31-year-old remains the most expensive signing in football history having joined Les Parisiens from Barcelona for a whopping £200million back in 2017.
But though he has two years remaining on his current deal at the Parc des Princes, Brazil's joint all-time top scorer is ready for a fresh challenge.
Club chiefs recognise that now represents their best chance of recouping a sizeable fee for their No10 and talks have begun with several parties, largely based in England.
Reports in France claim the Red Devils have already registered their interest, with Neymar's international team-mate Casemiro said to be championing a move to Old Trafford.
Chelsea are another club in the frame but appreciate a lack of Champions League football next term puts them in a difficult negotiating position.
It is thought United would prefer to initially take Neymar on loan, while PSG will push for a permanent sale.
