Man City chiefs Soriano, Txiki make serious pitch to Neymar camp

Manchester City have made a serious move for Santos star Neymar.

The Daily Mail says City have made the first move in the race to sign Brazilian star Neymar.

City’s top two executives Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain are said to have held initial talks with Neymar’s family and his representatives in a box at Wembley on the night of England’s friendly against Brazil on February 6.

Chief executive Soriano and director of football Begiristain were guests of the FA in the VIP Wembley suite for the 150th anniversary match.

But the pair went to the trouble of visiting the IMG hospitality box - located on the other side of the stadium - in order to make contact with the Neymar camp and were spotted during their half-circuit of the corporate areas.
