Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar will reportedly be the subject of a summer bid from Manchester United if their Qatari takeover bid is successful.
talkSPORT understands that Sheikh Jassim Bin Al Thani has submitted a world record offer in excess of £5billion to buy the Red Devils.
British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe has also launched his final bid, with the two offers going in before Friday’s 10pm deadline.
But it remains to be seen whether the Glazer family will sell up, with it believed they are holding out for a fee close to £6bn.
Should Sheikh Jassim’s offer be accepted, it has been said he will look to make a marquee signing, with Brazilian forward Neymar in his sights.
That is according to The Sun, who have stated the 44-year-old will sanction a move to bring the ex-Barcelona winger to Old Trafford.
The ambitious billionaire bidder is claimed to be keen to make a transfer that will signal his intentions moving forward at the Theatre of Dreams.
Though the news outlet didn’t say how much Neymar would cost, with the player still having two years left on his contract at Parc des Princes.

And it remains to be seen whether Les Parisiens would even be willing to part ways with Neymar, who has been a key player since arriving from the Nou Camp in 2017.
PSG signed the 31-year-old for a world record £200m fee, with Neymar helping the French side win four top-flight title titles.
The Santos academy graduate has been named in the Ligue 1 Team of the Year three times, while he was crowned as the Player of the Year in 2018.
Neymar, who is currently on the sidelines with an ankle injury, has scored 118 goals in 173 games for PSG.
The Sun have also reported that should a transfer for Neymar materialise, it wouldn’t rule out an approach for Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
It was revealed earlier in the week how United were laying the groundwork to secure his services.
United fans serenaded Kane with chants of ‘we’ll see you in June’ during Thursday’s 2-2 draw against Spurs, leading the England international to comment on a potential link-up with Erik ten Hag’s side.
Though talkSPORT understands that Spurs are braced to receive a bid from London rivals Chelsea in the race for Kane’s signature.
