Neymar was seen hugging Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba before Manchester United’s clash against Barcelona in the pre-season tour of America on Sunday morning.

He has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford and although speculation surrounding a move has slowed down, the Brazillian has continued to be linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, claiming the French side are prepared to smash the world-record transfer fee to acquire his services.

Mourinho also had a word with Gareth Bale earlier in the week before the clash against Real Madrid, telling the Welshman, that he hadn’t been able to sign him because he hadn’t had the opportunity to talk to him.

Here’s a look at Neymar with Mourinho and Pogba prior to the game.

Neymar would be an exceptional signing at Old Trafford, but as Mourinho has previously described, a move is close to impossible as Barcelona hope to keep hold of their star asset.

United are chasing realistic targets and although Ed Woodward has come to difficulties to get the deals over the line, Mourinho is still expecting two more players before the end of the window and there is no point wasting resources on Neymar if he has no intention of making a move.
