Neymar has been linked with a return to Spain.

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has visited injured superstar Neymar at his luxury home in Brazil amid rumors swirling about the striker’s intention to quit PSG.

The star’s father, Neymar Santos Sr, posted pictures late Monday of the meeting on Instagram. “Visit of the day! Thanks PSG,” he wrote.

In one picture, Neymar gives the thumb’s up, flanked by Al-Khelaifi and his father. Another picture shows the club president with Antero Henrique, sports director at PSG, and Jean-Martial Ribes, the club spokesman.

On Tuesday they were expected to visit Neymar’s charity center, the Neymar Junior Institute, in Praia Grande, Sao Paulo state.

The world’s most expensive player broke a bone in his right foot on February 25 and faces weeks of recuperation following surgery in early March.

Visita do dia ao @neymarjr ! Thanks @psg

Unconfirmed media reports are swirling in Europe that Neymar has also grown disenchanted with PSG, who crashed out of the Champions League as the forward missed the second leg on March 6, and wants to return to Barcelona or even join rivals Real Madrid.

Brazil’s national team is hoping the striker will be back to full fitness in time to help lead the campaign at the World Cup starting in Russia on June 14.

David de Gea has been a long-term target for Madrid.

Jose Mourinho has issued a hands-off warning to Real Madrid over Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea.

The Spaniard has been a long-term target for the La Liga club, and his current deal runs out at the end of next season, although United have an option of extending that deal by a year.

They are also looking to tie him down to a longer-term contract that could keep him at the club until at least 2023.

“I see him staying here,” Mourinho told Spanish TV station La Sexta.

“I do not know what the intentions of Real Madrid are but they should think about another player.”

ARTURO VIDAL

The Chilean star has hinted he will leave Bayern Munich this summer amid speculation that he could join Chelsea, reports Sport Bild.

The 30-year-old is out of favour at the Allianz Arena and has been heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in recent months.

Vidal’s place in the Bayern midfield is uncertain after this campaign when Leon Goretzka arrives from Schalke.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is keen on bolstering his engine room after failing in each of the last three windows to sign Roma ace Radja Nainggolan.

Chelsea-bound? Vidal.

DAVID DE GEA

Paris-Saint-Germain are weighing up a move for the incumbent Manchester United goalkeeper, Telefoot reports.

The French giants have invested heavily on outfield players, with the No.1 spot largely left with Kevin Trapp and Alphonse Areola.

But, according to the French publication, the Ligue 1 champions want to bolster that area of their team as they attempt to become the biggest club in Europe.

Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois and AC Milan teenager Gianluigi Donnarumma are also being targeted as alternatives if Unai Emery is unable to tempt De Gea with a move away from Old Trafford.

De Gea has been widely linked to the Old Trafford exit door.
