Manchester United Manager, Erik Ten Hag has admitted that the club is lurking tabs to sign Paris Saint-Germaine forward, Neymar Jr., News About Nigeria reports.
Ten Hag disclosed this in a press conference on Wednesday, ahead of his side’s clash with Chelsea on Thursday.
According to reports, Anthony Martial could be one of the players leaving Manchester United this summer with Manchester United being linked with Neymar.
Neymar has been on the club’s radar in recent days, with Manchester United reportedly seeking a loan option deal for the 31-year-old Brazilian.

He believes it is not a fair assessment to say that Martial has underperformed in the current season, claiming he has played some good games in the campaign and has scored a few times.
Neymar is due to leave PSG this summer, with the Ligue 1 side willing to let him leave, whether on loan or on a permanent deal.
Recall the News About Nigeria had earlier reported that Neymar has enjoyed an impressive career with popular clubs but has never played for any English team.
A move to Manchester United would be a groundbreaking transfer for the skillful player, as well as for the Manchester club.

It will be a long fight with Man United if Chelsea takes their offer seriously, because of the Brazilian relationship with the would-be Chelsea new coach Mauricio Pochettino.
