Manchester United Ready To Smash The Transfer Record

It’s just been three months since Neymar completed his world record move of £198 million from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain, and recent reports already suggest that he could once again be heading to a new club next summer.

The insane transfer deal allowed PSG to bring the Brazilian to Parc des Princes for a tenure of three years, but could very well see him leave just after one, with Real Madrid planning to make a stunning swoop for him in next year’s summer transfer window.

It was reported earlier that Los Blancos’ president Florentino Perez is preparing to offload four stars, namely Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema, James Rodriguez, and Rafael Varane, to make way for Neymar.

And now, according to the report from Express (via Daily Mail), Premier League heavyweights Manchester United are also targeting to acquire the services of the 25-year-old.

However, it was claimed that their prime reason to go after the coveted star is not yet clear.

United boss, Jose Mourinho was in the market looking for a top quality left winger this summer. The Special One was linked with the likes of Gareth Bale and Ivan Perisic, but the former Barcelona star was never in the picture, until now.

Furthermore, a recent surge in Anthony Martial’s form has solved Mourinho’s left wing problems to some extent, but the Portuguese is still said to be looking for more players to fill the role, with Neymar being one of the potential candidates.

Along with the Red Devils, Real Madrid could also face stiff competition from Manchester City, who are the third club in race for the Brazil international’s signature.

But unlike United, the Cityzens have abundant supply of firepower in the area, and a high profile signing like Neymar could prove to be superfluous.
