According to Catalan newspaper Sport, Neymar is unsettled at the Nou Camp and doesn’t enjoy playing second fiddle to Five-time Ballon D'Or winner Lionel Messi who just signed a new contract with the club worth £500,000-a-week.

Neymar’s representatives are advising him to leave Barcelona and top playing second fiddle to Messi so he can forge his own reputation as the main man in a major European club.

Manchester United have been linked with the Brazilian in the past and will gladly take him despite just spending £75million on Romelu Lukaku from Everton. The Real Madrid deal may look a bit tricky as Cristiano Ronaldo is still the main man and the last player to switch from Barcelona to the Catalan club is Luis Figo.

Neymar join Barcelona in 2013 from Brazilian Santos and he is today regarded as one of the best players in the world.
