Manchester United fans are looking stunned here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim that the club are trying to sign Barcelona player Neymar.
This comes right on the heels of the Red Devils missing out on Pedro and seeing the winger leave for Chelsea – and as one of our punters notes over a couple of games of pool with our landlord, if they could not convince Pedro to join, we really don’t see Neymar deciding to leave Barcelona.
Not only would the Brazilian be leaving one of the best attacking sides in the world, but he would be swapping the complete article for a team who have a lot of work to do, and are not guaranteed winners anymore – unlike Barcelona.
Our regulars quip Louis van Gaal might need to look elsewhere for his surprise signing, and we have to agree!
United fans. Is this just madness? Could you ever envisage Neymar at Old Trafford? Let us know your thoughts below!
