Manchester United have reportedly rejected an offer from Paris Saint-Germain to swap France midfielder, Paul Pogba for their want-away forward Neymar Jr.

Pogba’s desire to leave Old Trafford this summer is no secret after he recently revealed that ‘it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else,’ with both Real Madrid and Juventus hoping to land the 26-year-old.

Neymar on the other hand has reportedly told the French giants that he would not play for them anymore, as rumors linking him with a move back to Barcelona spiral on.

Pogba (L) and Neymar (R) are angling for moves from their respective clubs.

But in an interesting twist, The Independent reports that PSG approached United about a direct swap deal for the players;and that United turned down the offer believing Neymar would be too extravagant for them.

It is claimed that although United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, is looking for another marquee signing this summer, Neymar’s £900,000-a-week in wages would be a major concern for the club who are so bent on keeping Pogba.   

Neymar though seems to have his heart set on a return to Barcelona, though, with Spanish media claiming he is willing to make a public apology to Barca supporters in a bid to secure his return to the Nou Camp this summer.

He is hoping to leave Paris Saint-Germain in this transfer window, just two years after he swapped Barcelona for the French capital in a world-record £198million move.
