Pep Guardiola has played down reports that Manchester City have been offered the chance to sign Neymar.

The Brazilian superstar has been heavily linked with a move away from the French capital this summer, despite assertions from new boss Christophe Galtier that he fits in with his plans.

Reports have suggested that PSG had approached Man City for Bernardo Silva, who is also wanted by Barcelona, and were willing to throw in Neymar as a makeweight.

However, Guardiola was quick to deny their validity when questioned about them during Man City's tour of the US.

"I’m sorry but it’s not true," Guardiola said. "Their information is not right, Neymar is an incredible player and the info I have [is] he’s an incredibly nice guy. But it’s not right. Every summer Manchester City are going to buy 150 players."

Man City have already completed the signings of Erling Haaland, Stefan Ortega and Kalvin Phillips this summer, while Julian Alvarez has linked up with the squad after his winter move from River Plate.

90min understands Brighton are expecting the Premier League champions to step up their interest in Marc Cucurella once Oleksandr Zinchenko joins Arsenal, but will demand at least £50m for the left-back.
