Neymar ‘tells Lionel Messi’ why he wants Man Utd move instead of Real Madrid

Published

PSG star Neymar has reportedly told former Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi he prefers a move to Manchester United instead of Real Madrid.
Manchester United and Real Madrid are both circling amid uncertainty over Neymar’s PSG future.

The Brazil international moved from Barcelona in August and scored 27 times before injury cut his first campaign at the Parc des Princes short.

Yet he could be on the move again this summer with Neymar supposedly underwhelmed by the standard of football in Ligue1.

Real Madrid appear likeliest to secure his signature, despite his Barcelona past.

But Spanish football outlet Diario Gol say Neymar could snub Real for a move to Manchester United instead.
It is claimed he has been discussing his future with Barcelona’s Messi.

The Argentina international was the reason Neymar quit the La Liga giants in the first place, having grown tired of playing in Messi’s shadow.

However, the PSG star remains close to his former team-mate.

And Diario Gol say he has told Messi that a move to United now appeals more than Real.

Neymar IS reportedly hellbent on ending his PSG career less than a year after he arrived.
But a move to United is now of greater interest because he does not want to play second fiddle to anyone.

Any Real transfer would still place him in Cristiano Ronaldo’s shadow.

And a move to Barcelona would see him play second fiddle to Messi once again.

At United, however, Neymar feels there is a club crying out of a superstar to lead them going forward.

The Red Devils may even invest in a blockbuster name with money gained from Paul Pogba’s potential departure.

Mourinho has warned Klopp that real success can only be achieved when a club win trophies not matches.

The Portuguese gaffer has won both the Carabao Cup and Europa League trophy with United since taking over in 2016.

“I think trophies matter,” Mourinho was quoted by EPSN as saying ahead of Liverpool’s clash.

“It matters, especially when you have the potential to fight for trophies and especially when you clearly say the objective is to win the trophy.

“I think sometimes to just say it is not very intelligent but when you have the potential, you have nothing to hide, you know from day one your potential and your desire.

“To say we want to win, everyone can say that but another thing is to say the potential in a way you have but I think Jurgen said already they want to win the Premier League, that is their objective.”

Klopp has not won any trophy with Liverpool since taking over in 2015 from Bundesliga side, Borussia Dortmund.

The 51-year-old has lost the Caraboa Cup and the Europa League finals as well as the Champions League.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted the huge gap between his team and Liverpool, is due to many factors.

Mourinho takes United to Anfield on Sunday, with his side sitting some 16 points behind the Premier League leaders.

They’ve lost four matches in the league this season, while Liverpool have remained undefeated.

“It’s not just about the money they spend in the summer, is about many things.

“It’s not just about spending money and reinforcing the squad, a football team is more than that, is not just about spending the money.

“It’s like a house, it’s not just about buying the furniture, you have to do work, you spend money on the best possible furniture and then you’re ready to live in an amazing house,” Mourinho told UK Mirror.

Mourinho then delivered the killer line when he was asked how far away his team are from what he wants to be seeing, placed in the context of Jurgen Klopp continually getting the best out of his Liverpool players.

“Far,” he said, simply.

And then what asked why, he replied: “The reasons I was saying. It’s not just about spending.”

The 17-year-old also missed a good chance to score his first Arsenal goal in the second half against the visitors.

Owen has now suggested that Saka already has similarities with Ronaldo.

“He [Saka] looked really nervous at the start of the game, myself and Martin [Keown] were both talking about it,” Owen was quoted by Metro UK as saying.

“But he certainly grew into the game. Just him having the courage to run at players was really refreshing to see.

“Some of the skill… I watched Ronaldo doing this the other day for Juventus.”
