Neymar has reached out to a Manchester United star over a possible move to PSG, while Real Madrid’s players are unhappy with their boss, according to Friday’s European papers.



Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil forward Neymar has reportedly sounded out Paul Pogba over a potential move to the French capital.

Speculation emerged on Tuesday that Pogba has told his United teammates he will 100% quit the club in January if Jose Mourinho remains in charge at Old Trafford.

The pair have been at loggerheads for the best part of 12 months now and tensions between the two men appear to have reached a nadir when they clashed in training last week.

According to Goal, Neymar is attempting to capitalise on the insecurity surrounding Pogba’s future, and fulfil his desire to play alongside the Frenchman.

Meanwhile, Mundo Deportivo recently claimed that Barcelona have gone cold on the 25-year-old for three reasons.

Firstly, they are put off by the £200m asking price that has reportedly been slapped on him by United, while the agent fees that would have to be paid to Mino Raiola as part of that are also an obstacle.

Finally, Pogba’s astronomical £250k-a-week wages have convinced the LaLiga giants to stay clear and avoid a January move.
