Manchester City owners launch audacious contract offer for PSG superstar forward



| Last Updated:


The City Football Group, who own 13 clubs including Manchester City, have made a stunning attempt to try and sign Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar.

The 31 year-old forward could follow in the footsteps of former PSG and Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi, who has agreed to sign for MLS side Inter Miami on a free transfer, following the conclusion of the campaign.

Neymar, who signed for PSG for a record-breaking €222 million in 2017, signed a new deal until 2025 two years ago, but has been linked with a potential exit this summer.

The Brazilian star was directly involved in 35 goals in 29 appearances for the Parisian club last season and also featured at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

PSG’s star-studded frontline could all leave the Parc des Princes this summer with uncertainty also surrounding the future of Kylian Mbappe, who revealed that he would not extend his PSG contract and would therefore become a free agent in 2024.

Amidst the uncertainty, Manchester City owners the City Football Group have reportedly made an audacious attempt to bring Neymar to New York City FC in the MLS.

The Secret Scout claim that the City Football Group’s New York City are trying to sign the forward, with a deal having been offered to the 31 year-old.

No decision has been made yet according to the outlet, with PSG having this week announced the appointment of former Barcelona and Spain manager Luis Enrique as their new head coach.

New York City are one of 13 clubs owned by the City Football Group, with clubs across the world in England, America, Australia, India, Spain and South America.

NYCFC won the MLS Cup in 2021 and have had an array of players from Europe join the club stateside, including Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo.

Former Chelsea player and manager Lampard joined NYCFC after a short spell at the Etihad Stadium, where the Englishman made 38 appearances during the 2014/15 season.

Lampard spent a season at Manchester City before moving to the MLS, although Neymar is not currently linked with signing a multi-club contract within the City Football Group.
