Man Utd boss Ferguson moves to trump Chelsea for Santos whiz Neymar

England's biggest clubs are all chasing Santos superkid Neymar for the summer market. The Sunday Express says Manchester United want him to replace Ryan Giggs, while Chelsea and Manchester City openly signalled their interest when bosses Carlo Ancelotti and Roberto Mancini went to the Emirates to watch him score both goals for Brazil against Scotland last Sunday.

Those three are among an elite group of teams who could afford the 19-year-old from Santos, given that his buyout clause is almost £40million.

Neymar, who spurned Chelsea's advances last summer and stayed in Brazil, is represented by agent Wagner Ribeiro and the influential Pini Zahavi, who is close to Sir Alex Ferguson.
