World superstar confirms Manchester United talks

NeymarWe almost choked on a pork scratching here in the Transfer Tavern over the summer when Manchester United were linked with Neymar- but it appears there was actually some substance to the rumours.

Brazilian superstar Neymar was unbelievably linked with a move to Old Trafford, which seems farfetched, but he told ESPN that ‘conversations’ were held.

“We had conversations, but there was nothing concrete,”

We can imagine the conversations were very short and swift, as there’s more chance of Brendan Rodgers remaining at Anfield until the next summer than there is of Neymar finding his way to the Premier League.

The former Santos man is rated very highly by Barcelona and is part of a deadly front trio for the Catalan side alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez- and to go from them to playing with Phil Jones and Michael Carrick is a large fall from grace.

Still, it made us chuckle, and for any United fan hoping for the impossible there’s a little glimmer of hope for you from the man himself.

United fans, is there any way Neymar could be lured to Old Trafford?
