Manchester United is believed to have launched an offer of around €190 million for Barcelona’s Neymar as the Premier League club is willing to go deep in their pockets and sign someone who can play alongside Wayne Rooney and start scoring goals for the English outfit which has recently been struggling trying to score goals on a consistent basis.
Louis van Gaal lost his chance to sign Pedro as Chelsea arrived and snatched him up which has already proven to be a transfer which has given Jose Mourinho positive results as Pedro almost single handedly collected all 3 points for Chelsea in his debut match when Chelsea faced off with West Bromwich Albion and claimed a 3-2 triumph.
Gareth Bale’s transfer from Tottenham Hotspur to the Santiago Bernabeu came at a hefty fee for Real Madrid as they had to pay €100 million in order to sign the Welshman but if this transfer does indeed follow through and Manchester United offloads €190 million, it would turn Neymar into the most expensive transfer in the history of football.
Neymar has a contract with Barcelona which extends until 2018 but his relationship with the Spanish outfit could end sooner than expected depending on whether or not this transfer involving Manchester United does get completed before the summer transfer window reaches it’s end.
However, even with all the money that Manchester United is prepared to spend on the Brazilian superstar, it might not be enough as the president of Barcelona played down these rumors as Josep Maria Bartomeu said: ‘’He must stay, not just three years, but five or 10 years more. Neymar feels great at Barca, We’ll have renewal talks later. We want him to stay for years and even to retire here.”
After only being able to score 1 goal from the opening 3 Premier League matches of the season, Manchester United is in desperate need of someone who can spark life in the attacking department of the club and now that they have lost out from signing Pedro, Louis van Gaal is setting his sights on Neymar but Barcelona does not seem to be interested in selling him despite having received a colossal offer.
