Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has revealed that Manchester United stand a great chance of securing the services of Barcelona star Neymar in the summer
Manchester United are long time admirers of Neymar’s abilities and it was recently confirmed by the player’s father that the Red Devils had indeed placed a bid to sign the Brazilian superstar last summer.
It is believed that United had placed a world record bid of around £139million in an attempt to secure the services of Neymar but evidently the transfer did not come into fruition as the attacker had no intention of leaving Camp Nou.
United still stand a chance of signing Neymar
With Neymar enjoying so much success at Barcelona, not many feel that Manchester United will be able to sign the Brazilian anytime soon but now in revelations which is sure to excite the Red Devils’ faithful, it can be revealed that the Premier League giants will have a great chance of landing the 24-year old in the upcoming summer.
According to Spanish football expert, Guillem Balague, Barcelona will be unable to afford new contracts to the trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar at the same time and as a result, United can potentially sign the Brazilian international in the summer.
Balague told Sky Sports, “Barcelona cannot afford to give new contracts to Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar as it stands – financially they do not have the power to do so.
“They need to bring a lot of money in, if they do that they will be able to keep them, but if they don’t they may have to get rid of one. That’s why Neymar keeps leaving the door open for United and others.”
