“I have a special love for them…” – Neymar has already singled out Man Utd star for praise

Neymar has already singled out a Manchester United player as his ideal team-mate.

It is being widely reported United are in talks with Paris Saint-Germain to sign Neymar.

The Brazilian is said to be seriously considering leaving the French capital this summer, six years after his world record £189million transfer to the Ligue 1 giants.

Indeed, Kylian Mbappe’s surge to stardom has meant Neymar, who is contracted at PSG until 2027, is no longer the club’s central attraction.

Indeed, PSG would allegedly not stand in the 31-year-old’s way should he push to leave in July.

According to the French publication L’Equipe, via theMirror, several Premier League clubs have expressed an interest in Neymar and are in talks with PSG. But United are thought to have made the most progress.

And Neymar could snatch at the chance to play alongside one Old Trafford star, in particular.

Neymar to United?

Ahead of the 2022 World Cup Neymar admitted he had a “special love” for Jadon Sancho’s style of play.

The United winger has struggled for consistency since his 2021 transfer to United. While Sancho has improved on his first season’s exploits, six strikes this term remains a considerable drop-off from the numbers he produced at Borussia Dortmund.

Nevertheless, Neymar has expressed his admiration for the attacker. Ahead of the World Cup, the Brazil star said: “I really forgot about England but obviously they have a chance!”

“I really like (Harry) Kane and Sancho. They’re two incredible players and I have a special love for them because I like players that have their qualities.”

Sancho too, has admitted to being a Neymar fan in the past. In May 2015, a 14-year-old Sancho, just weeks after joining Manchester City’s academy from Watford, tweeted: “My idol Neymar.”

Of course, Kane has also been linked with a move to United this summer. The England captain is entering the final year of his Tottenham contract this summer, and he’s unlikely to sign new terms with the North London club.

Sancho, Neymar and Kane could be the makings of a devastating three-pronged attack for the Old Trafford club next season. Of course, Marcus Rashford, United’s top scorer this campaign, may also benefit from the superstar’s arrival
