In spite of all the rumors, Neymar is not likely to join United anytime soon
Manchester United has scored 2 goals from their opening 3 Premier League matches of the season which is a fairly low amount of goals for a team which is aiming to become the new champions of England and have spent a hefty amount of cash in the summer transfer window.
RadamelFalcao left Old Trafford after not living up to the expectations of fans and Robin van Persie also made his way out of Manchester United, this has left the Premier League club with a deficiency in their attacking department.
Barcelona’s Neymar has turned into a summer target of Manchester United as Louis van Gaal is believed to be interested in signing the Spanish attacker but it will be an extremely player to sign taking into consideration that Neymar has a release clause of €137 million.
Even if Manchester United does splash out that world record fee in signing the Brazilian forward, it seems unlikely that Barcelona are even willing to think about offloading one of their most influential and important players in the entire team.
The agent of Neymar, Wagner Ribeiro stated that all the rumors and reports which have been emerging is nothing more than speculation but nothing is actually real.
Wagner Ribeiro told the media: “There’s nothing. This is speculation in the summer window. The move does not exist. “He has three more years of contract. English newspapers are very speculative. Barcelona never think about selling Neymar and he is very happy there.”
Neymar has a contract with Barcelona which extends for 3 more years and the Brazilian was a key figure in the treble winning season of the previous year and after all the trouble that the Spanish club went through in signing Neymar, it seems hard to believe that Barcelona will be interested in allowing him to leave after having only spent 2 years in Camp Nou.
