Manchester United have been alerted following revelations made by Barcelona star Neymar over interest from rivals Manchester City, Express reports.
The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford amid speculation that manager Louis van Gaal wanted to add a world class attacker into his ranks.
United were even believed to have been preparing an offer worth around the £149.3million region for his services, but a formal move failed to materialize.
However, they could now face tough competition from their Premier League rivals after Neymar confirmed that City were also keen on signing him.
“Yes, yes [I am aware of City’s interest],” he said.
The Brazil international has been on sensational form for the La Liga giants this term, featuring 19 times in all competitions so far, scoring 16 goals while being able to provide a further 11 assists.
Van Gaal is in desperate need for a world class attacker given that his side have now lost three consecutive league matches, with his job at the club now under jeopardy.
