It is widely believed that Manchester United have been making enquiries about the availability of Brazilian superstar Neymar as they look to build a new squad of world class players for next season. They are likely to have a truly world-class manager at the helm, with Mourinho said to be coming very soon, so who which players will be coming with him?
They might have to look elsewhere for their talent after Neymar’s father reportedly told him to stay put at Barcelona and enjoy being part of the best team in the world. It would be a blow for Manchester United if they were not able to lure the player to Old Trafford, given the fact that almost any player in the world would have signed for the in the late 90’s to early 2000’s.
Neymar would get a pay rise if he moved to Manchester, from around £200,000 per week to £300,000 but it appears that it might not be just the money that is influencing him. His family appears to be one factor and there is also the issue of Manchester United not qualifying for the Champions League next year.
Barcelona are hoping to sign him to a new deal and deflect any interest from the few clubs who could afford the player, as they aim to keep their trio of superstars together. Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar make up the deadliest attacking force in football and although they crashed out of the Champions League, they still have to be regarded as one of the best, if not THE best team in the world.
Can Manchester United lure Neymar to Old Trafford? Would he be as brilliant for United as he is for Barcelona?
