AC Milan interested in signing Neymar as big statement signing
PSG want to offload Neymar this summer
AC Milan are reportedly interested in signing Neymar this summer in what would be a major statement signing for the Italian champions.
Milan won the Scudetto this season for the first time in 12 years and are looking to build upon their domestic success by making a name for themselves once again in Europe by bolstering their squad with a marquee name.
While their fellow title rivals strengthen their squads with big-name players, Milan are keen to add to their ranks themselves.
PSG willing to sell Neymar for right place
Neymar is reportedly one of the players that Paris Saint-Germain are willing to offload after their underwhelming campaign last season, which saw them crash out of the Champions League in the round of 16.
Reports in Neymar's native Brazil have claimed that the Rossoneri are determined to land the winger as they feel his arrival at the San Siro will send a message to the world, claiming that 'the giant is back."

The 30-year-old still has two years left on his deal and while PSG are well aware that they are unlikely to recoup much of the world-record fee they paid for him, they will still likely command a high fee for him to leave the French champions.
Any deal however would reportedly see PSG pay some of the forward's astronomical wages, with Neymar rumoured to be earning £602,000 a week, according to Salary Sport.

Neymar would become the latest Brazilian Superstar to join Milan
Should a move go through and Neymar move to Italy he will join a long list of incredible Brazilian talent that has worn the red and black stripes of AC Milan.
Players such as Kaka, Ronaldinho, Rivaldo and Ronaldo have all played for Milan and remain iconic in the club's history and success.
