The Transfer Tavern is at its best when the punters, no matter who they support are crowded round in wide eyed wonderment, waxing poetic about the prospect of a world star arriving in the Premier League.
Though in the current landscape of European football, that may prove to be a wishful thought.
In fact it is.
According to the Daily Mirror, Barcelona megastar Neymar is set to put an end to the constant Manchester United speculation by agreeing a new deal with the Catalan giants.
The brilliant Brazilian has long been linked with a blockbuster move to Old Trafford, as well as noisy neighbours Manchester City.
However, it is understood that the 24-year old is nearing an agreement with the Blaugrana that would see him extend his stay there until he is 30.
Financial restrictions were believed to have been a stickler for the La Liga champions, though the former Santos prodigy is thought to have moved up to behind only Lionel Messi in terms of pay at the Camp Nou.
Did United ever really have any hope of landing Neymar in the slightest?
