Neymar's father who is also his agent is reportedly in regular contact with Real Madrid's Florentino Perez. But Diario Gol has now claimed that there has been no contact between the two parties since the first leg between Real Madrid and PSG and this has irked Neymar's camp.
The tabloid further reports that Manchester United are monitoring Neymar's situation in Paris. The Brazilian can negotiate with any club who is willing to pay €222 million for his services. Neymar Sr. is open to his son joining the Premier League giants.
