Swap deals can certainly be a smart way to save a few bucks, particularly considering how outrageous certain transfer demands are getting since the previous few windows.
However, when said swap deals begin to involve humongous talents, eyebrows are bound to be raised.
In line with this, an outrageous report would have us believe that United will give up two of their most prized talents in order to land Neymar in the summer.

The Brazilian made a scintillating move worth £200 million in the summer, effectively raising the market’s asking price by inflation.
However, despite a strong showing with the French giants, wherein he managed to find a regular scoring knack, multiple reports have claimed that he is far from happy in Paris.
Controversy after controversy has marred his short tenure there, and his teammates don’t appear to be his biggest fans either. However, that, by no means, validates the need for a transfer this early either.
Despite that, the report reckons PSG’s burning intention to build a side brimming with the finest French talent will tip them to accepting United’s offer. In Pogba and Martial, they will certainly find two of the best that the nation has to offer.
Incidentally, both players have been linked with an exit in the past weeks. Martial’s potential for leaving stems from the fact that he doesn’t receive the kind of playing time he deserves, what with the selection dilemmas Mourinho has in terms of attack.
As for Pogba, the former Juventus maestro has come under heavy fire recently after a string of poor performances, with reports even claiming disputes with Mourinho. However, after a man of the match showing against City, that might stand resolved.
All in all, this move is as fantastic as it seems, and thus, will most likely never occur.
