Last year, Paris Saint-Germain broke the transfer record to sign Neymar from the Catalan giants. Since moving to the French capital, the 26-year-old star has scored 28 goals and provided 19 assists in 30 appearances.

The ex Santos player has not played a single game since suffering a foot injury back in the month of March. He is currently recovering in order to feature for Brazil in the World Cup.

Neymar is one of the highest earning athletes in the world. As per a report published by L’Equipe in February, the Seleccao attacker currently earns a mammoth salary worth €3.067 million a month i.e. around £625,000-a-week.

At the moment, United’s highest earning player is winter signing Alexis Sanchez, who gets close to £500,000-a-week before tax according to British source The Mirror.

As per Don Balon, Neymar is open to moving to the PL, but at the moment, he only wants to concentrate on the World Cup and will decide his club future after the tournament.

One comment

  1. Neymar is what Utd need. That will mean 4 left sided players and not one on the right.
    Utd will never go forward with this clown in charge.
    First he needs 2 full backs and at least 2 midfielders. So why another winger. The money spent could make Utd a very strong team in other area
    He is just like VanGaalp
