Manchester United in talks to sign Barcelona star Neymar next summer – report

Published

Manchester United are always in the market for marquee names, as shown by their willingness to spend big amounts on Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku.

Pogba arrived from Juventus 12 months ago for a world-record £89million fee, just four years after he had quit the Premier League giants on a free transfer.

Lukaku signed for United from Everton for a huge £75m fee that makes him the second-costliest player in the club’s history.

Neymar, meanwhile, is facing an uncertain future at Barcelona again.

Yesterday, Catalan newspaper Sport reported that the player wanted to leave the Nou Camp so he can escape from Lionel Messi’s shadow and challenge the Argentinean for the Ballon d’Or.

Reporting that the Brazil international is in talks with United over a move next year.

It is said that, though Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain are desperate to snap him up, Neymar is not keen to move to France.

Instead, he wants to go to a tougher, more prestigious league and England’s top flight bits the bill.

Specifically, Neymar thinks that United would be the perfect environment to flourish – both on and off the field.

The 25-year-old would instantly become the face of the Red Devils if he were to join, and their financial muscle means they are more than capable of paying his huge £200m buyout clause.

Neymar is supposedly in talks with United chiefs over a move and things are progressing quickly. There is even an offer on the table, waiting for his signature.

However, any transfer is likely to happen 12 months down the line.

The player wants to give one more year of service to Barcelona and, should they fail to beat Real Madrid to silverware, will consequently make the move to England.
