Man Utd and Chelsea on Neymar transfer alert 'with PSG winger available to leave this summer for huge fee' | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED and Chelsea have reportedly “been alerted” to the possibility of signing Brazilian superstar Neymar.
The 31-year-old’s club Paris Saint-Germain are five points clear at the top of the Ligue 1 table but are on their worst run for 12 years.
PSG suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Bayern Munich in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash this week.
The Bayern setback marked a third straight defeat in all competitions for PSG – the first time that has happened since 2011.
Neymar, who was slammed for enjoying a McDonald’s and hitting a casino after the midweek loss, was involved in a dressing-room row with chief Luis Campos on Sunday after being beaten 3-1 at Monaco.
And that result came after the 2-1 setback at Marseille in the last-16 of the French Cup.

Now 90 Mins are claiming that the forward could be offloaded by PSG at the end of the campaign.
Neymar, the world’s most-expensive footballer, is under contract at Parc des Princes until 2025.
However, the French giants “are understood to be open to his possible departure” and “sources have confirmed to 90min that a number of Premier League sides have been spoken to over a potential deal”.
They state that “intermediaries are believed to have spoken with Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Newcastle” to inform them of the Samba star’s interest in playing in the Premier League.
