Neymar 'turned down' Manchester United and Man City to stay at Barcelona
Manchester United and Manchester City made offers to sign Barcelona superstar Neymar last summer, according to a report in Spain.
An article in Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claims that the Manchester clubs were among four sides vying to secure a deal for the Brazil forward before he agreed a contract extension at the Nou Camp in June.
The report claims that Real Madrid and PSG also wanted him and were prepared to meet his €190m (£170m) release clause.
Neymar's agent revealed last month he was 'close' to joining the Reds before signing his new deal earlier this year.
