Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar is weighing up potential alternatives if he can’t sign for Barcelona this summer, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The Brazilian is said to be open to signing for Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Manchester United if Barca can’t afford to sign him.
Supporters on Twitter don’t think Neymar would fit in at United, while others question the reliability of the story:
No way this dude is trouble

Apparently, United are down the pecking order anyway because of the fact that the Red Devils failed to qualify for the Champions League.
Still, the Manchester side would be one of the few clubs in the world who could afford Neymar’s transfer fee and wages.
The Brazilian has burned his bridges at PSG having told the French club before the Copa America that he wants to leave.
At this moment in time, though, there doesn’t appear to be a favourite to sign the Brazilian international.
