Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool in contact with Neymar minders

Three Premier League giants have made contact with the minders of unsettled PSG star Neymar.

Neymar saw at least two confirmed offers from former club Barcelona turned down for him last summer - and the Catalans remain keen to sign him.

Le Parisien says Liverpool are also actively monitoring Neymar and team-mate Kylian Mbappe and keeping in touch with their entourages.

Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City are also named, along with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus.

Moves to La Liga with either Real Madrid or Barcelona have appeared most likely, but Premier League clubs are now preparing to swoop if the situation advances.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has said of Mbappe this season: "OK, from a sporting point of view, there are not a lot of reasons to not sign Mbappe, what a player he is.

“But it is about the money of course. No chance. Absolutely no chance, sorry for killing that story.

"I don't think there is a club in the world that can buy Kylian Mbappe from PSG. And we are involved in that too. We cannot do it, it is as easy as that.

"We have nothing (more) to say about it to be honest, but [buying] this calibre of player is difficult."
