Premier League champions Manchester City have been linked with a summer move for Paris Saint-Germain forward and Brazil star Neymar.

PSG have made the 30 year old Brazilian forward available for transfer this summer and reports even suggest Neymar have been offered to Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola has shut down talk of Manchester City exploring a move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar, with the club having maintained all summer that they would not look to replace Raheem Sterling.

“I’m sorry but it’s not true,” Guardiola said when asked about Manchester City’s interest in signing Neymar.

“That information is not right. Neymar is an incredible player and the info I have he’s an incredibly nice guy. But it’s not right. Every summer (they say that) Manchester City are going to buy 150 players.”
