Manchester United are reportedly interested in landing Neymar, and the player is said to be keen as well.

Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is reportedly keen on joining Manchester United this summer, with the Red Devils said to be in talks with the Paris club for him. 

The 31-year-old Brazil international's PSG career has been plagued with injury and he has not played since earlier in the year when he went for surgery for his knee.  

He has come under heavy criticism this year as well, with a section of the club's fans going to his house to jeer him. The club are also said to be open to letting him go, despite the former Barcelona star having a contract until 2027. 

Neymar open to Man United move 

Following the earlier reported Manchester United interest in him, Foot Mercato now confirms that the player is keen on the move, and will only leave PSG for a move to Old Trafford. 

The reports claim Neymar rejected an offer from Saudi Arabia in favour of the record English champions. He is also said to have been contacted by Pep Guardiola to convince him to join United's city rivals, but the theatre of dreams remains his favoured destination. 

Meanwhile, AS Roma boss Jose Mourinho has denied having had any negotiations with other clubs as his future at Roma remains in contention

The former Chelsea boss is yet to pen a new deal with I Gillarossi, with his current deal expiring in a year. 

He is also reported to be of interest to Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Lucas Ocampos, generating doubts about his continuation at the Stadio Olimpico.
