Manchester City 'have been offered PSG star Neymar' for cut-price summer deal
| Last updated
Four Premier League clubs have reportedly been contacted about a potential sensational summer swoop for Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar.
The 31-year-old, who remains the most expensive player in football history, has a contract with PSG until 2025 after extending his stay.
But according to transfer correspondent Pete O'Rourke of Footy Insider, a slew of sides have been contacted regarding the Brazilian's availability ahead of the transfer window.
Neymar signed for a world-record £198 million in 2017 but it's said that PSG will now look to offload him for a fee between £70 and £80 million.
The Ligue One champions are said to have reached out to Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Newcastle United.
PSG are believed to be content getting rid but the aforementioned clubs are aware of the sizeable wages he would command and could be put off by the hefty financial package required.
Neymar has an impressive tally of 18 goals and 17 assists in 29 appearances this season but caused a stir recently after being spotted in McDonald's following the Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich.
He had also played in a poker tournament, much to the frustration of teammate Kylian Mbappe.
PSG ended their wretched run of three straight losses at the weekend courtesy of a Lionel Messi last-gasp free-kick against Lille at the Parc des Princes.
But there was a huge negative as Neymar was stretched off after suffering a nasty-looking ankle injury. Fortunately, a scan has uncovered that there was no break.
“This is not bad luck,” Galtier said on Neymar's injury.
“There are always reasons for injuries - the schedule, the sequence of games. It is never random. He is being examined to know the severity of his sprain.
“Of course, it complicates things and that’s the way it is. We have to keep our heads down. We’re going to do it again, but with a victory. That is more pleasant.”
