Manchester City make move for £55m Neymar - report
Manchester City have made a move for Santos sensation Neymar according to reports in England.
The Daily Mail is claiming in an exclusive that City have been in talks with Neymar's family with a view to a move to the Eastlands.
Club officials are reported to have met Neymar's representatives at the recent England vs Brazil friendly, with City supremo Txiki Begiristain reported to be involved in talks with Neymar's father.
The paper reports that City officials, themselves guests at the match, took the trouble of walking to the executive box containing Neymar's representatives during the match.
The Citizens will face fierce competition from Barcelona for the Santos star, who are widely reported to have secured a first option on the player last year.
Meanwhile, Neymar continues to insist in interviews that his future remains at Santos until the 2014 World Cup, where his contract will expire.
