The Daily Mail have managed to get Manchester United fans looking annoyed here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim target Neymar is set to get a five-year, bumper new deal with Barcelona.
Now as one of our punters notes, this is one of many, many times this has happened to Manchester United this summer, and it is becoming embarrassing for the club to be linked with so many players they cannot sign – and who just then get better deals with their current clubs.
As one of our punters notes, this is also an issue because with the window closing soon, United are going to have to find that big marquee signing from somewhere, and it certainly does not seem like Barcelona will be that place!
Manchester United fans. How big of an issue is this? Should you just stop going after big name players? Let us know your thoughts below!
