Neymar: Linked with summer switch to Man Utd

Neymar’s agent says the Brazil forward “feels good” at Barcelona but reckons it would be a dream for every player to play for Paris Saint-Germain.

Neymar has excelled as part of Barca’s ‘MSN’ strikeforce alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, with the Catalan club six points clear at the top of the Primera Division, through to the Copa del Rey final and in the Champions League quarter-finals.

However, the 24-year-old’s representative Wagner Ribeiro has suggested his client could be open to a transfer.

“Neymar has a contract with Barca until 2018,” Ribeiro told L’Equipe.

“He feels good in Barcelona, he’s loved over there and he’s playing for the best team in the world. It’s no small feat to impose yourself at such an enormous club.

“But the prospect of living in a city like Paris and to play for a club like PSG – that’s also a dream for every player.

“We’ll see in two years, when he will be at the end of his contract.”

A move could happen even before then, though, with Ribeiro acknowledging PSG are one of the few teams in the world capable of funding a move for a player with a release clause in his contract of 193million euros (£154m).

“If PSG show an interest in Neymar, we can discuss it,” Ribeiro said. “A contract can also be terminated provided that the release clause is paid.

“It’s huge: 193m euros. But I don’t think that would be an insurmountable problem for PSG.”

When asked about the link to PSG, Barca defender Gerard Pique told a press conference ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid: “Neymar is not going to move from Barcelona. I’m convinced.

“I know him and I know that he’s not going to go. That’s that.”
