LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)-Paris Saint-Germain star, Neymar is apparently being watched by Manchester United, who could pounce if their proposed Qatari takeover is successful.
Neymar’s season has been cut short by an ankle injury he suffered on February 19 during a Ligue 1 match against Lille. Neymar had a strong start to the 2022–23 season, scoring 18 goals in 29 matches.
Although PSG has a long-term contract with him that lasts until 2027, there has been a lot of uncertainty regarding his future in the French capital, with the team reportedly wanting to sell the forward in the summer.
The French publication Foot Mercato claims that Manchester United has been keeping an eye on Neymar’s status for a number of months and has even questioned as to whether he will be available during the January transfer window.
However, the sale of the club caused the relocation to be put on hold. United is anticipated to take concrete action to sign Neymar before to the 2023–24 season, should the potential Qatari takeover at Old Trafford be completed by the summer.
Co-owner Todd Boehly is claimed to have discussed the 31-year-old’s availability with PSG’s senior executives earlier this year, while Chelsea is also reportedly interested in his services.
PSG worry that Neymar would fail a potential medical with any new club and that his fitness issues might impede a lucrative transition, despite the fact that the Premier League’s powerhouses are very interested in bringing the star to England.
Manchester United will face Tottenham on Thursday in the Premier League, While Neymar is now undergoing rehabilitation for his ankle injury, he has already been diagnosed as out for the full season.
