Incoming Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has made Barcelona superstar Neymar his No.1 transfer target. 

This has been reported by The Sun, who claim that City are set to go head-to-head with rivals Manchester United for the Brazilian star's services. 

In fact, the report claims that both clubs are ready to make Neymar their poster-boy as they go in search of long-term success in the Premier League.

Neymar, of course, is recognised as one of the leading players in world football, so he would represent a huge coup for either Manchester club in the summer. 

The 24-year-old is currently starring alongside the duo of Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi at Camp Nou, but it appears that becoming the face of one of the biggest clubs in England could interest the attacking star.

Both teams in need

United, who are led by talismanic captain Wayne Rooney, are clearly in need of strengthening after a disappointing season under Louis van Gaal. 


As it stands, the Red Devils sit in fifth place in the Premier League - six points behind fourth-placed Manchester City. 

City, on the other hand, are by no means the finished article - they currently trail table-toppers Leicester City by six points - so Guardiola may well have to make a number of changes when he arrives at the club. 


It may well take a huge sum to land Neymar, but he would be worth it. The addition of the Barcelona superstar for either club would completely change the dynamic of the league. 

Will United or City sign Neymar in the summer? Have your say below!
