Manchester United are ready to pay a world record bid for Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar, according to the Mirror.

Real Madrid are also being heavily linked with a move for the Brazilian following a frustrating season in Paris.

United have made it known that they will rival Jose Mourinho’s former employers with a £200 million bid.

The Red Devils are ready to pay the player £30 million a year in wages, which would equate to well over £500,000-a-week.

Paris Saint-Germain are desperate to keep hold of the Brazilian who only joined last summer from Barcelona.

The former Barcelona star was signed by the club to help them become a European force, but the Brazilian has seen his future at the club questioned due to his attitude off the pitch.

Madrid are thought to be keen on signing Neymar but there are also concerns about whether or not he could play in the same team as Cristiano Ronaldo.
