Neymar has responded angrily to questions about his future after having been linked with a move to Manchester United in recent days.

The 26-year-old Brazilian’s future has been a source of speculation in recent weeks despite him only having signed for Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

Both Real Madrid and Manchester United have been credited with an interest in signing the attacker this summer, although it is not yet clear whether those reports are anything more than speculation at this stage.

One thing is for sure though, Neymar himself is clearly not happy to hear about the constant speculation linking him with a move away from PSG.

Speaking to Fox Sports, Neymar said: “Every window it is like this, there are a lot of things, I’m not in the moment to talk about anything.

“Everybody knows what I came here to do, the goals I have, my goal now is the World Cup, it’s not talking about transfers. It’s getting annoying now.”

Neymar has been in good form for PSG since his move to Paris last summer, scoring 19 goals and making 13 assists in Ligue 1 for the French side in 20 appearances.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are likely to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the summer transfer window gives Jose Mourinho the chance to bolster his squad ahead of next season.

The Red Devils finished as runners-up to Manchester City in the Premier League but will look to win the FA Cup when they take on Chelsea FC in Saturday’s final.
