The Brazilian superstar scored the only goal of the match to earn a narrow 1-0 win for his team in their pre-season friendly against the Red Devils.
The former Santos man is the talk of the football town at the moment, amidst rumors of him joining PSG in a money-spinning move that would smash the transfer record held by Pogba for being the costliest player in the world.
However, the two superstars didn’t show any kind of enmity between them when they came face to face in the tunnel. On the contrary, Pogba and Neymar bonded in a fashion that pleased many football fans around the world.
Right before the kick-off, Neymar and Pogba were seen cracking jokes and hugging each other in a fashion which suggested that the two get along very well.
A few Manchester United fans got a tad more excited after witnessing their interaction, and they started to tweet about possibilities of Neymar joining the Old Trafford outfit. Take a look:

Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain are believed to be in the final stages of signing Neymar for a ridiculous €222 million by triggering his release clause.
If the personal terms are agreed, the Barcelona winger will earn a colossal €30m-a-year after taxes to establish himself as one of the highest paid footballers in the world.
