The clubs have been long-time admirers of the Barcelona attacker, but until recently, the player is thought to have been happy over in Spain.
However, it appears that Neymar is now more open to a move with Italian sports journalist, Tancredi Palmeri citing the reason that he wants to be the 'main man' at a club. Despite a prolific season and growing reputation, Neymar knows this won't be the case at Barcelona, or at least for a long time.
United are reportedly ready to break the world transfer record whilst also offering Neymar around £15m per year. Unsurprisingly, City are also waiting in the wings with bulging pockets too!
