PSG to Man Utd – Neymar for Pogba?

Ligue 1

Paris Saint-Germain are believed to have approached Manchester United with a view to a player-swap deal involving Brazil superstar Neymar and 2018 FIFA World Cup winner Paul Pogba.

The writing appears to be on the wall for the world's most expensive player Neymar, who is reportedly keen to return to FC Barcelona.

With the Ligue 1 champions having conceded defeat in their bid to retain the 27-year-old's services, the Parisian giants are now said to have transfer-listed the former Barca star, as per Marca.

While the Blaugrana are reportedly front-runners, ahead of Real Madrid, in the race for Neymar's signature, it has now been claimed that PSG are not keen on doing business with the Catalan club, and have made enquiries on wantaway United star Pogba.

Much like Neymar, the Frenchman appears to be set for an exit from his current club after recently hinting at a desire for a new challenge.

As per The Independent, PSG have entered negotiations with the Red Devils in a bid to secure Pogba's services, with Neymar moving in the opposite direction.

United, however, are believed to be wary of accepting the reported deal tabled by the Ligue 1 side, with question marks being raised over the financial aspect of the deal.

It has been claimed that Neymar reportedly earns a staggering weekly wage of £900 000 (R16.4 million), which is more than double what United's current highest earner Alexis Sanchez reportedly gets at Old Trafford.

The Manchester club's hierarchy are thus believed to not be keen on Neymar's arrival, with it being feared that the Brazilian's presence would cause more division in the United dressing room.
