Neymar of Paris Saint-Germain might be acquired by Manchester United this summer if the Glazers are successful in selling the team at auction.
One of the few parties that have made a third offer to purchase the Premier League giants is Qatari financier Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al-Thani, and if he were to be successful, their transfer policy would change.
According to The Sun, the legendary Brazilian player will be free to leave the Ligue 1 team at the end of the season because of a persistent ankle problem that kept him sidelined for the majority of the season.
The 31-year-old nevertheless managed to score 18 goals for PSG this season and appears destined to win another medal in France.
Given that his contract has an expiration date of 2025, it is likely that United would have to make the Parisian club a fair offer to acquire the talisman, but this would not be a problem under Sheik Jassim.
Neymar would give great attacking flair comparable to that of Antony, who was hired last year, which is something Erik ten Hag is eager to improve upon in his final third resources.
However, the Glazers’ valuation of the Red Devils at £6 billion makes it unclear whether the club’s ownership will change in the near future.
An offer closer to the £3 billion figure, according to financial experts, would be realistic, but there doesn’t seem to be any opportunity for discussion under the current system.
