The ambitious Middle Eastern billionaire bidder Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al Thani wants to sign the Brazilian as a star player this summer.
In addition, the club’s present owners, the Glazers, are currently seeking additional funding through a third round of bidding.
A full acquisition of the Americans was the goal of several suitors like Sheikh Jassim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe; however, neither party has yet to match the Glazers’ £6 billion asking price, and Sir Jim is rumored to be considering a partial takeover.
If Sheikh Jassim is successful, According to SunSport, one of his first moves will be to make an extraordinary move to recruit Neymar.
The Brazilian attacker is regarded as one of the best in the world.
He is also his country’s joint top goalscorer, having equaled Pele’s 77 goals.
And he’d be a big signing for the club, signaling the new owners’ plans for the future.
This season, he has 18 goals in 29 appearances, but he has been plagued by ankle problems.
His inconsistent availability and rumoured £616k-per-week deal have fueled speculation that PSG is eager to let him go.
PSG is embarking on a team restructure that might see high-profile players such as Neymar depart the club.
Following his £198 million transfer from Barcelona to the Ligue 1 giants, Neymar remains the most expensive player in the world.
His contract at the Parc des Princes is due to expire in 2025, with the possibility to extend it until 2027.
A bid for the former Barcelona star does not preclude a move for Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.
The England captain is still expected to be at the top of the club’s summer transfer list.
During Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham, visiting fans were heard chanting, “Harry Kane, we’ll see you in June.”
When asked about the away end songs last night, the star stated, “I heard what they were saying, but I’m just focused on this team and trying to finish strongly.”
Sheikh Jassim’s acquisition bid is contingent on convincing the Glazers to sell out altogether, which could be difficult.
The detested Americans are thought to be considering staying at the club for another decade.
It has been reported that they believe that with more outside investment, they can eventually treble United’s present valuation.
