Ten Hag further fuels Neymar to Man Utd transfer talk
On Monday there were some sensational reports that Man Utd and PSG were in talks over a transfer to Old Trafford.
And Ten Hag has refused to deny that United are working to bring the Brazilian to Manchester.
What did Ten Hag say about Neymar?
"When we have news we will tell you," Ten Hag said coyly in his pre-match press conference before United’s match against Chelsea on Thursday.
It is understood that PSG have placed Neymar on the transfer list and wish to offload him in the summer.
The Parisians are unhappy with Neymar’s performances on the pitch, as well as the circus he often brings off it as well.
As a result, Neymar has been heavily linked with a summer transfer to the Premier League - probably the only major league whose teams can afford the Brazilian’s salary.
Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano explained on Tuesday that United’s current owners - the Glazers - are not planning to sign Neymar.
However, he also said that this could change with the new ownership once the sale of the club goes through.
Romano added that Neymar was available for sale, either on loan or permanently.
Neymar’s career at PSG
Neymar smashed the world transfer record when PSG paid his €222 million release clause in the summer of 2017 to buy him from Barcelona.
The Brazilian moved to Paris hoping to escape Lionel Messi’s shadow in order to become the best player in the world.
However, the now-31-year-old has failed to live up to his price-tag and has been plagued by injuries and declining form over recent years. He has still managed 118 goals in 173 appearances, as well as a host of domestic trophies.
