Neymar’s inconsistency has led to increased speculation over his future, with Chelsea continually linked with the forward.
But now, according to Footmercato in France, United are ready to join the hunt for the former £198million star.
they say Old trafford bosses made enquiries about the attacker at the start of the season but decided against a concrete approach.
However, it is claimed that, should Qatari investors be successful in their bid to take over at United this summer, then Neymar could be seen as a marquee signing to signal their intentions.
Neymar’s contract runs out in 2025 and he does have the option to extend it to 2027.
But it is claimed PSG want to part with the player sooner rather than later despite the player wanting to stay.
Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al thani – a member of the Gulf state’s ruling royal family – is a front-runner in the race to take over at Old trafford as the Glazers hold out for a £6billion fee.
Al thani’s bid is reportedly worth £5bn but he is promising to wipe the club’s debt and fund upgrades for both Old trafford and Carrington.
the Glazers are set to sanction a tHIRD round of bidding after refusing to accept any offer so far.
talkSPORt claims interested parties have been informed they have until the end of the month to submit revised offers.
