Manchester United are in active negotiations for Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar, according to L’Equipe.

The Red Devils are keen to bolster their squad with the 31-year-old.

But it is understood that PSG could accept a loan offer with or without an option to buy.

United would contribute to the Brazilian’s salary for the duration of the loan.

It’s claimed that Erik ten Hag’s midfield general Casemiro is in contact with Neymar to convince him of a switch to Old Trafford.

Super Eagles striker, Umar Sadiq pulls out of AFCON 2023 with Paul Onuachu replacing him



Super Eagles and Real Sociedad striker, Sadiq Umar, has been ruled out of the 2023 African Cup of Nations and replaced by Paul Onuachu.

This is coming after striker Victor Boniface was ruled out of the competition which is scheduled to start tomorrow, January 13 in Ivory Coast.

Umar, 26,  picked up a knee injury in Nigeria’s 2-0 friendly defeat to the Syli Stars of Guinea on Monday.

In a Friday statement posted on X by the official Super Eagles account, it was announced that Paul Onuachu will replace Sadiq Umar.

“Sadiq Umar is out of the AFCON 2023 squad due to injury and Paul Onuachu replaces him.”

Umar will now return to his Spanish base for further assessment.

Onuachu was initially named in Nigeria’s provisional 40-man squad for the AFCON but failed to make the final cut.

The Super Eagles will kick off their quest for a fourth AFCON title by taking on Equatorial Guinea in their Group A opening game on Sunday, January 14th, before further clashes with host nation Cote d’Ivoire on January 18 and Guinea-Bissau on January 22.

Carlos Alcaraz Beats Novak Djokovic To Win Wimbledon Men’s Singles Final



Carlos Alcaraz has won the Wimbledon men’s singles title, ending Novak Djokovic’s winning streak.

The 20-year-old Spaniard beat his Serbian opponent in an epic five set match, 1-6 7-6 (8-6) 6-1 3-6 6-4, to lift the trophy for the first time.

After overcoming a nervy first set, in which he won only one game, he dug in and produced a series of stunning passing shots to defeat one of the greatest players of all time.

He becomes the youngest man to lift the Challenge Cup since 18-year-old Boris Becker won the second of his three Wimbledon titles in 1986.

It is Alcaraz’s second grand slam win after claiming the 2022 US Open. He remains the world number one.

His victory stopped Djokovic from gaining his eighth Wimbledon title, something that would have put him level with Roger Federer.

The Princess of Wales, Prince George and Princess Charlotte were watching from the royal box on Centre Court.

The number two seed was on track for his 24th grand slam win and his fifth consecutive Wimbledon victory in a row – minus the 2020 tournament which was cancelled because of COVID.

Before the match, Alcaraz said that going up against a “legend from our sport” made the final more special.

I always say if you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. Novak is one of them. It would be great if I can do it,” he said.

The pair last met on court during the French Open semi-final last month, where Djokovic took the last two sets 6-1, 6-1.
