Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho remains in the hunt for Barcelona star Neymar.
According to Don Balon, the 54-year-old specialist has kept good friend Florentino Perez, the Real Madrid president, up-to-date on his plans to prise Neymar away from Barca this summer.
And Madrid sources claim the Red Devils manager is growing confident of pulling off the transfer coup.
Mourinho is in regular contact with Neymar’s father, who has never shut the door on United being their next destination.
And all the while, during these past months, Perez has enjoyed a front row seat thanks to his good relationship with Mourinho.
