Man Utd star is ‘trying to persuade Neymar to join’ after club hold talks with PSG over Brazil superstar
A MANCHESTER UNITED star is trying to persuade Neymar to join the club, according to reports.
SunSport revealed the Red Devils will line up a sensational move for the Brazilian should the Qatari takeover bid prove successful.

Now L’Equipe claim talks have taken place between the Old Trafford club and Paris Saint-Germain over the possible blockbuster transfer.
It is suggested the French giants are open to selling the world’s most expensive footballer – which could leave Kylian Mbappe as the undisputed main man at the club with Lionel Messi also set to depart the Parc des Princes.
And the report adds that one key United man is doing his bit to lure Neymar to Manchester.
Casemiro plays with the £198million superstar for the Brazil national team – along with current United men Antony and Fred.
And as his incredible debut season draws to a close, he is hoping to have another big impact by convincing Neymar to make the switch so they can play alongside each other at club level, too.
Neymar, 31, is undoubtedly one of the most talented footballers of his generation and would bring plenty of flair and trophy-winning experience to Erik ten Hag’s squad.
One Red Devils fan labelled their instrumental midfielder “Agent Casemiro” for his tactics.
However, reports suggest as many as four Premier League clubs are chasing after Neymar’s signature – including Champions League-bound Newcastle.

The injury-hit PSG forward has managed 13 goals and 11 assists in just 20 Ligue 1 games this season.
However, he turns 32 next season and currently earns a staggering £600,000-plus per week under his current contract that runs until 2025.
And other supporters want Casemiro to tap up fellow Brazilian sensation Vinicius Junior instead of Neymar.
The Real Madrid winger is in red-hot form but could be looking to leave Spain after the latest horrific onslaught of disgusting racist abuse.
