Manchester United have been linked with a considerable degree to move for the Brazil international and the Spanish media have at an earlier time suggested they would be willing to pay his release clause to bring him to the Premier League side.
According to the Daily Record report, it claim that Neymar has told friends close to him that both Manchester United and Chelsea have made enquiries whether he would push for a move away from Camp Nou
United have reportedly been never-ceasing in their pursuit for the 25-year-old and are inclined towards offering for the player’s salary demands and buy out his Barcelona contract if needs be.
The report imply as a possibility that Neymar would be open to a move to England to avoid a situation where both Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are considered too valuable.
After Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered a double cruciate ligament rupture, Jose Mourinho’s summer recruitment plans have been taken another cause and there is now a greater concentration on possible forwards.
United were ready to let Wayne Rooney go this summer and the reported move for either Neymar and Antoine Griezmann was considered as a direct replacement to the outgoing England's captain.
Mourinho had planned on using Ibrahimovic as the main focal point of his attack, however, with his injury ruling the Swedish player for an expected nine months, a second forward is set to be targeted.
The Portuguese has a plan of putting a physically strong striker upfront who have the temperament of holding the ball up, creating chances and also be able to score. During his reign at Chelsea, he had Didier Drogba and Diego Costa leading the line, while at Inter Milan he placed Diego Milito in that role.
While Mourinho assigned Marcus Rashford as a central forward, the report also hint that he isn’t willing to place the pressure of leading the line at United at this stage of his career.
