STUNNER! Neymar offered by PSG to Man Utd - and turned down

Manchester United have rejected a swap offer from PSG involving Neymar.

The Independent says United turned down an offer from Paris Saint-Germain to swap Paul Pogba for Neymar.

Pogba looks set to leave Old Trafford this summer after recently claiming "it could be a good time to have a new challenge somewhere else".

Real Madrid and Juventus are both chasing his signature, while Neymar is angling for move away from the Ligue 1 giants, with a return to Barcelona his preferred destination.

PSG approached United about a direct swap deal for the players. United turned the proposal down, though, believing Neymar would cost too much.

It's claimed they turned down the swap deal with Neymar because of concerns over his £900,000-a-week wages and United's desire to keep Pogba.
