Liverpool made the headlines in the Champions League this week, as they beat PSG 3-2 at Anfield, a scoreline that does not show the dominance the Reds displayed during the game.

Roberto Firmino was the eventual hero, and despite best efforts from Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Tuchel’s men had to settle for a loss on their European campaign’s opening day.

However, whenever Neymar is in action, it is hard for him to stay away from the news, and the case is similar this time.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is always believed to have had a liking for the Brazilian, and the manager now seems determined to bring Neymar to Old Trafford.
