Manchester City have reportedly turned down the chance to sign Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain, who offered him to the Premier League club.
According to Le Parisien, PSG sensationally offered Neymar to Man City and wanted Bernardo Silva included in a potential deal.
But the Blues have declined to enter talks with PSG over Neymar and refused the offer to include Silva in the transfer package.

The Brazilian international has been at PSG since 2017 following his world record transfer from Barcelona.
But it's claimed that the French giants have made him available for transfer this summer.
The 30-year-old has three years left on his contract, but PSG supposedly want to cut ties with the superstar forward.
Though a move to Man City appears to be off the cards, with Pep Guardiola snubbing PSG's offer.
The Spaniard does not want to 'unbalance the construction' of his squad, per further reports.
Guardiola has already recruited new talent this summer having snapped up Erling Haaland, Julian Alvarez and Kalvin Phillips.
Though he's also offloaded Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling to Arsenal and Chelsea respectively.
Christophe Galtier, who was appointed PSG boss earlier this month, admits there are many things he can't control regarding Neymar.
Asked about the player's future in Paris, he replied: "Yes, I was clear. Afterwards, I repeat, in this area, there are many things that I cannot control."
Galtier added: "We have 26 or 27 players apart from the goalkeepers, it's huge. There are players for whom the spaces will be reduced. We spoke with them. It was not an easy exercise.
"They are players we have to respect. We will start this season with 21 outfield players, and a few youngsters. The big clubs that perform at a very high level are those that manage to integrate the best young people into an experienced and quality workforce."
