PSG threaten to ruin Man Utd transfer plans because of Neymar and Barcelona
Paris Saint-Germain could ruin Manchester United’s plans to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund this summer, reports say. The Ligue 1 giants may lose Neymar and are eyeing the England international, who has been in stunning form of the German titans this season.
PSG nearly lost Neymar back last summer, only to end up keeping the Samba star amid strong interest from Barcelona.
However, the Brazil international could leave the club at the end of the current season with Barcelona still keen on snapping the forward up.
PSG would want a big-name replacement for the trickster, who cost them a massive £200million when they landed him in 2017.
And the Sunday Mirror say that the Ligue 1 giants are eyeing Sancho to replace him amid the teenager’s sensational form for Borussia Dortmund.
The 19-year-old was the hero on Saturday, scoring the only goal of the game for Dortmund against Freiburg at the Westfalenstadion.
And, to this point, United have always been considered as frontrunners in the race to sign the teenager.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wanted Sancho last summer.
But he was unable to sign the Dortmund star due to United’s failure to secure a place in this season’s Champions League.
This summer, Solskjaer is hopeful the Red Devils will have the right resources in order to acquire Sancho.
But PSG could be a difficult side for the winger to turn down.
Another club currently involved in the battle to sign Sancho is Liverpool – and former Premier League forward Jan Aage Fjortoft have spoken to people in the know.
“I asked a journalist who follows [Sancho] closely from one of the biggest papers in Germany,” Fjortoft said.

“I asked if he will go to Manchester United but he said ‘No, no, no, Sancho will go to Liverpool’.
“Manchester United is in for him as well and there are four or five big candidates as well but he thought that because of the friendship between Klopp and this club they would prefer him to go to Liverpool.
“They said imagine if they had for or five candidates who all pay the same, they will let him go where they have the friends.”
Fjortoft then revealed Liverpool could sign Timo Werner if they don’t get Sancho.
“Obviously going to Manchester United and Liverpool is two different perspectives,” Fjortoft added.
“Going to Liverpool might not matter too much for him, but it might for Timo Werner, who is the other candidate.
“Timo Werner costs half of the price of Sancho, so could they take both? Would they put Sancho on the bench?
“Manchester United the sports perspectives are not the same.
“You are not sure if they will get into the Champions League. Solskjaer could try to talk him into the plan of the club.”
