Being an ex-Barcelona product, he is now being eyed by Real Madrid.

However, new reports state that Manchester City are looking to outbid Madrid for Neymar.

Will Neymar consider moving to Madrid or City?

Will Neymar consider moving to Madrid or City?

As we had discussed earlier, Neymar's father had confirmed that Neymar is in no mood to leave PSG for now.

Although a move away cannot be still ruled out, chances are it could go either way.

While Neymar's regular injuries have taken a toll on his PSG career, it is unlikely that he would survive in brutal English conditions, especially if he remains injury-prone.
