Real Madrid gets a new competitor from Premier League to land Neymar Jr


XtraTime Web Desk: Spanish giant Real Madrid’s aim of signing Brazilian star Neymar Jr. from Paris-Saint Germain this summer may face a blow as English Premier League giants Manchester United are also in the race to sign him in the upcoming season.

Real Madrid is trying to sign Neymar to strengthen their forward line ahead of their new season, but as per Sunday Mirror’s report United has also showed their interest of signing the Brazilian sensation.

He would cost in excess of £200million having joined PSG from Barcelona last summer for a world record £198m.

Despite the eye-watering sums on the table - Neymar's £30m-a-year wages are another factor to consider in any deal - United would be keen to bring the samba star to Old Trafford.

The 26-year-old has had a mixed debut season in League 1 where it began frosty both with manager Unai Emery and team-mate Edinson Cavani following a row over penalty duties.

He failed to fire the Parisians to the latter stages of the Champions League and has missed the final part of the season after suffering a serious injury.

Ahead of a timely return to fitness before the World Cup with Brazil this summer, Neymar will remain a hot topic of debate in the transfer market.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is adamant that the Brazilian superstar will not be sold this summer.

Al-Khelaifi sent out a defiant message, insisting that the 26-year-old is not for sale at any cost and will remain at the Parc des Princes next season.

'Who said he cannot stay here? Did anyone say that? Nobody,' Al-Khelaifi told reporters.

'He has a contract with us and he will stay, 2,000 per cent.'
