EPL Transfer News: Manchester United Bid £145M For Barcelona’s Neymar
The Red Devils made a desperate move to snatch Neymar from the locker room of Barcelona. Manchester United offered a record-breaking amount to land the Brazilian hitman at Old Trafford, Neymar’s father revealed on Thursday.Advertisement
Neymar has been linked to Manchester United since last season. Neymar senior told a judge during a court case this week that an unnamed club, which isn’t Barcelona’s fierce rival Real Madrid, had offered his son an astronomical amount of £144 million, reports Real GM.
Who else could it be other than the Red Devils, who are eyeing Neymar for a while to resolve their striker issue. The Brazilian hitman has 19 goals and 13 assists for the Catalans this season, a performance capable of luring many big outfits from Europe.
Later, Neymar Santos told a Spanish radio station that it was the Old Trafford outfit who placed the staggering bid for his son, reports The Times.
