Paris Saint-Germain have burst past Manchester United in the race for Neymar by informing Barcelona they will pay the Brazilian's £145m release-clause. The forward's future at the Nou Camp is currently up in the air as he continues to mull over a new contract. Barcelona want to extend the 24-year-old's current deal past 2018 and they are ready to offer him a pay rise. But, United have expressed an interest and French champions PSG are keen too. 
And, according to Spanish news outlet OK Diario, PSG have told Neymar that they will meet the £145m release-clause in his current contract. That would force Barcelona into selling - unless they could persuade the forward to snub a move to France in favour of signing a new deal. However, Barca will need to make a substantial offer as PSG are reportedly willing to offer Neymar wages of £360,000-a-week

Liverpool blow! Napoli set to beat Reds to top midfield target Piotr Zielinski
22-year-old Poland midfielder Piotr Zielinski is a wanted man this summer

Napoli appear to have beaten Liverpool to the signing of Udinese midfielder Piotr Zielinski.
Zielinski is being chased by a number of clubs in Italy following a productive loan spell at Empoli last season, but Liverpool were hoping the lure of the Premier League could persuade the Poland international to join them.
Udinese are aware of the interest in the 22-year-old and have decided to cash in, rather than give the player the chance to prove himself next season.
According to Sky Italia, Napoli have entered talks with Zielinski's representatives and are close to agreeing personal terms.
Liverpool could still hijack the deal by slapping a mega bid down for the youngster - but it is understood they are now pursuing other targets.
