Both Manchester United and Chelsea endured difficult weekends, much to the dismay of the punters propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern.
While a draw with West Brom and a loss to Crystal Palace respectively won’t decide the complexion of their remaining campaigns, it’s fair to say both sets of supporters could do with some cheering up indeed.
Well, thanks to reports from the Times, the drinkers are in delight. A story on their website suggests Barcelona superstar Neymar is considering offers from both Premier League giants as he looks to increase his salary.
Undoubtedly one of the elite talents in world football, the 25-year-old may find it hard to usurp Lionel Messi as the best-paid player at the Camp Nou and is reportedly looking for an after-tax salary of £21.2m.
A figure of £170m is quoted in the report, meaning the Brazilian superstar would smash the world record should he move, with United fans here hopeful their side will again break it.
Our resident Blues meanwhile, hope the allure of playing for the likely champions of England and in the Champions League would tempt Neymar into moving to west London.
