Man United prepare record-breaking transfer swoop

NeymarManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have been knocked off their bar stools by audacious reports this morning, which state a world record transfer is being lined-up.

Le 10 Sport state Manchester United are preparing to activate Neymar’s £140m release clause, with the Brazilian’s contract negotiations with Barcelona stalling.

The South American sensation has been thoroughly impressive since arriving in Catalonia in 2013, forming an incredible forward trio alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, which helped Barcelona storm to a treble-winning campaign last term.

With 45 goals in 74 La Liga appearances in the past few years, Neymar has quickly erased fears that he would be unable to shine in Europe. His fine-form in 2015 was signified by the announcement that he’s joined Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo on the three-man shortlist for the Ballon D’Or.

However, contract negotiations with Barcelona seem to have hit a brick wall and United are desperate to capitalise.

Louis Van Gaal is seeking exciting young players to create a legacy beyond his post at Old Trafford and they can come no bigger than Neymar, who is widely expected to become one of the best players in history as his career progresses.

Our United regulars would love to see Neymar wearing their famous colours but believe a move is simply impossible, despite what the papers are saying.
