5 reasons why Neymar should join Manchester United and not Real Madrid

Lionel Messi has conceded it "would be terrible" if former Barcelona teammate Neymar joined Real Madrid this summer, as the five-time Ballon d'Or victor voiced his opinion on the furious speculation surrounding the Brazilian's future.

Therefore, this latest report from Mirror might come as a stark contrast to the Special One's statements, as it claims that the Red Devils are all set to make a mega move for Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar.

Neymar left Barcelona for PSG in August after growing exhausted of performing in Messi's shadow.

He said: "It would be bad, because of all that Neymar means for Barcelona". He won the Champions League and La Liga. It would be a huge blow for everyone.

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane recently expressed his own view that the Brazilian star would be a compatible fit with Cristiano Ronaldo but they would need to place a bid in excess of £200million to prise him away with PSG President Nasser Al-Khelaifi adamant he will not be sold in the summer. He holds the notion that he has nothing to prove by being successful at another club.

"It was a year where I learned a lot, a different year for me", he added.
