The Daily Mail have managed to get Manchester United fans looking seriously interested here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think that the club could well have signed Neymar this summer.
Now as one of our punters notes over a beer and couple of burgers by the bar with our landlord, we think that Neymar is just being polite when making the remarks, claiming that there was ‘contact’ with United in the summer, but no offer was actually made.
As our landlord points out, no matter what offer United put on the table, we cannot see Neymar having wanted to take them up on it, especially given he is at the best side in the world and playing with the two best forwards he could ever have dreamed of.
Our resident Manchester United fans over by the billiards table feel that it would have been sensational if the club could have signed Neymar, but aren’t too disappointed as the club have the new Thierry Henry, in striker Anthony Martial!
Manchester United fans. Is this a load of rubbish or did Neymar actually consider leaving the best side in the world for one who are only just back in the Champions League? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
