Neymar issues angry response when asked about potential Manchester United transfer

Neymar has hit back at reports linking him with a move to Manchester United by admitting he is ‘annoyed’ with the speculation over his future at Paris Saint-Germain.

The Brazil international is reportedly unhappy with life in France and is looking to leave the Ligue 1 champions this summer.

Real Madrid are understood to be working on a potential deal to bring Neymar to the Santiago Bernabeu.

But reports have also claimed that United are ready to rival Madrid for the forward and are willing to match the £30 million-a-year salary he is earning at PSG.

Neymar was in Paris on Sunday evening to receive his Best Ligue 1 Player award, and after the ceremony the player was quizzed about his future.

But while the 26-year-old refused to commit his future to PSG, he became irked by the prospect of a transfer after Brazil’s World Cup campaign.

‘Every window it is like this, there are a lot of things, I’m not in the moment to talk about anything,’ Neymar told Fox Sports.

‘Everybody knows what I came here to do, the goals I have, my goal now is the World Cup, it’s not talking about transfers.

‘It’s getting annoying now.’
