Will Barcelona striker Neymar Jr finally land in Old Trafford? Well, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is ready to go all-out offensive for the superstar hitman.
Neymar’s father recently revealed that his son won’t be on the move this summer. But Mundo Deportivo reported that the new United manager wants to add Neymar in his forward-line “at all costs”.
“There are three big clubs in the world who want to hire Neymar and pay the clause of €200million to Barcelona.” Pointed out the Brazilian superstar’s agent Wagner Ribeiro, as reported by The Sun. Paris-Saint Germain and the Manchester City are also eyeing the Brazilian International.
The latest claim alleged that Lionel Messi doesn’t like Neymar’s ego. But Barca’s Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitic pointed out that the two, along with Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez, are the best of pals.
The Spanish giants’ lawyers reacted quickly to foil the proposed move of the Red Devils by making one-third of MSN put pen to paper on a mega-money new contract. They are confident of finalizing it by Friday.
Ed Woodward, the executive vice-chairman of United, twice visited the Catalan city to rope in Neymar in last three months. But in both cases, the move failed to materialize.
The 24-year-old Brazilian striker is now on a £77,000-a-week contract at Barcelona, as reported by the Manchester Evening News. Neymar has still two years left on his current deal at the Nou Camp, and negotiations over a renewal have been delayed.
