English giants Manchester United are reportedly interested in luring Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar to the Premier League with a mega-deal.

Paris Saint Germain are looking to make back most of the money they spent on acquiring him last season as another club would pay another world record fee to take him away from PSG.

He netted 19 goals in 20 league games for the Paris club before suffering a foot injury in February.

After receiving his award from Brazilian legend Ronaldo at the Pavillon d'Armenonville, Neymar paid tribute to his PSG teammates - particularly Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.

PSG would have been boosted in their hopes of keeping hold of Neymar, as the 26-year-old posted a picture of himself in next season's kit.

"My goal now is the World Cup, it is not time to talk about transfers, I am a little bored now", Neymar told Fox Sports, as relayed by AS.

Jose Mourinho's team would have to fork out more than £200 million (RM1.07 billion), a world record, for Neymar, apart from a £30 million a year salary. Right now, my objective is the World Cup, not talking about transfers. However less than 12 months on, he has been widely tipped to be in the move again, with Champions League finalists Real Madrid set to swoop.

Earlier, Neymar walked around the Parc des Princes stadium with the rest of the title winning PSG players after they were handed the Ligue 1 trophy.

"The Spanish press are for the Spanish clubs. There will be changes for sure, but I am not thinking about that now".

Neymar wins France player of the year award. Emery, who will leave PSG at the end of the season, won the coach of the year award.
