Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping for a miracle, as they clutch onto their pint glasses with added optimism after sensational reports regarding a massive signing.
Neymar wants to be the leading player at his club and understands that may not be possible with Barcelona, leading the Brazilian ace to look elsewhere and reports state United have been locked in negotiations in the past few weeks after making a formal approach.
The Brazilian currently earns £6.7m-a-year at Barcelona, who are keen for him to sign a new deal in Catalonia, but United’s offer of more than doubling that wage to £15m may prove to be too big a temptation for the Ballon D’Or finalist.
As well as the audacious wage they will offer Neymar, United are said to be willing to break any record necessary to sign the South American from Barcelona.
Our landlord believes Neymar will not leave Barcelona though and that all these stories are just a negotiation tactic.
United fans, will Neymar move to United? Let us know in the comments below!
