Manchester City was offered the opportunity to sign Brazilian superstar Neymar in exchange for Bernardo Silva, according to the Premier League leaders.

According to Le Parisian, the French giants proposed a trade with City that would see Pep Guardiola pay a player in exchange, despite reports that Silva has caught the eye of PSGs new manager Christophe Galtier.

Guardiola does not want Neymar's presence to disrupt the squad's harmony, something he has spent years attempting to achieve over many transfer windows, with Erling Haalan, Julian Alvarez, and Kalvin Phillips as the clubs' latest additions.

Neymar is the only player who will not join City this window, despite PSG offering him to the club, with the Brazilian being one of the highest-paid players at the French giants at a reported 600,000-a-week, with Kylian Mbappe the only superstar who is believed to earn more.

Neymar's future has been rife this summer, with the wingers' contract recently being extended until 2027, a move that might hampered PSG's squad for many years to come, with Galtier attempting to revamp the whole squad.

PSG is keen to break away from their star signing strategy, which has been a major obstacle in their quest to win the UEFA Champions League.

City are correct to reject PSG's audacious bid for Neymar.

It's a transfer straight out of FIFA 22. Silva has been one of City's best players other the past two seasons, and the company's inability to offer Neymar to the Premier League side can be both respected and mocked for even considering the offer.

The French giants made a massive error by including a clause to prolong Neymars' contract for another five years, and City made the correct decision, rejecting PSG's intention to offer him in exchange for Silva, who will be one of Cityzens' most important players next season.
