Neymar ready to join Man UTD – Guardian
The Neymar to Manchester United transfer speculation reached a new height after emminent British media Guardian reported that the Brazilian has apparently agreed to join Manchester United from FC Barcelona.
The furore began after Sun had reported on Friday, 21st August that Manchester United are apparently preparing an audacious bid for Barcelona superstar. The news created a huge response among the European media as started stimulating the transfer rumours.
It was further reported today, that Neymar’s international agent Pini Zahavi was spotted at Old Trafford last afternoon during the match between Manchester United and Newcastle United in the Premier League. Though, the player’s personal agent Wagner Ribeiro clarified that the player is happy at Camp Nou and has no plans of leaving the club any time soon, the transfer speculations never stopped.
Guardian suggests that Manchester United wants a big name in their squad in this transfer market and accordingly are planning to land the Brazilian at Old Trafford before September 1 the day transfer window closes. But as things are going as of now Barcelona might not sell their priced possession this time but can let him go in next season’s transfer window.
Neymar had joined Barcelona in 2013. After an average debut season at the club, Neymar tasted success in the succeeding season. The attacker won the treble with the Spanish giants and had also scored the decisive goal at the UEFA Champions League final against Juventus FC.
He was also teh third highest goal scorer in La Liga just after Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar’s Barcelona team mate Lionel Messi. He is one of the key forces of the Barcelona squad.
Last week Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward had visited Spain to have talks with Barcelona club officials. At that time it was reported that United went for Pedro Rodriguez who became out of favour at the club. Pedro later joined Chelsea bu snubbing Manchester United.
If media reports are to be believed then Woodward was keen on getting Neymar than Pedro at the club. He apparently went to Spain to check about Neymar’s availibility rather pushing a deal for Pedro.
Even though it is hard to digest such a huge rumour, Manchester United fans around the world might get ecstatic about a fantasy move for the Brazilian superstar.
Neymar had joined a five-year deal in 2013 which keeps him at the club till 2018. But as the media reports claim, Neymar might move out of Barcelona for a bigger glory.
If at all United plans to place a bid for Neymar the club will have to shell out an unrealistic amount of money as transfer fee.
