According to reports by the Express, Neymar could be ready to leave Barcelona this summer after being implored by his father to do so, because he thinks Neymar would not be able to get past Lionel Messi, and make a name for himself in England.

This has given Jose Mourinho hope that he could bring the striker over to Old Trafford this summer.

The Red Devils boss has been a fan of the Brazilian and could go the extra mile to sign the Brazilian should he decides on an exit.

The reports further states that Manchester City is also in pursuit of the 25-year-old and his wish to play under Pep Guardiola could be an advantage for them.

This season, the Brazilian was honored as the third-highest goal scorer for Barcelona behind both Luiz Suarez and Lionel Messi. Ranked among the best player in the world, the trio will be aiming to win individual awards and become the best they can be. That could be a bit tedious especially when competing with two other top class attacker.

The three hoard the goal at Nou Camp, but Neymar is not capable of taking the spotlight away from Messi and at 25, it could be the right time for him to leave the club  and rise to stardom at  leading European club.

Cristiano have shone in both the La Liga and the Premier League, which is why he is considered by some to be the best in the game. Although the best teams are not found in the England, the Premier League has proven to be the most challenging league where only the strong survive.

The difficulty faced by Pep Guardiola and Paul Pogba shines the light on the challenges of playing in the English top tier. A move to the premier League would take Neymar out of Messi’s shadow and make him a world class player.
