Manchester United supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern cannot believe what they are reading in the Metro – with the publication claiming (via Don Balon) that Manchester United have offered Barcelona superstar Neymar £271k-a-week to join the Red Devils.
Now, this has certainly made a few of our punters here in the Tavern choke on their peanuts, and we cannot blame them, as this is an extortionate sum of money to be forking out on a player!
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern remains sceptical about this story, and feels that Barcelona simply will not sell Neymar anytime soon, and envisages seeing the Brazilian spend the majority of his career at the La Liga giants.
A couple of Manchester United fans over by the pool table here in the Transfer Tavern are discussing this pretty mental news, and feel spending £14.1 million a season on wages on a player is simply outrageous, even for someone as good as Neymar!
Mike, a hardcore United fan here in the Transfer Tavern, feels that Neymar would be one hell of addition to United, and would undoubtedly make them serious title challengers again, but does feel the sum of money being banded around is simply way, way too much.
Manchester United fans…… What do you make of this news? Do you envisage seeing Neymar at United? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!
