- During 2015 Summer, Man Utd Made A $250m offer for Barcelona striker Neymar.
- Information is leaked by Neymar’s father.
- The Red Devils are officially the craziest club on earth.
Manchester United were reportedly about to pay a gobsmacking $250m to sign Neymar from Barcelona, according to the striker’s father. In a recent interview with COPE, Neymar Senior doesn’t anticipate that his son is going anywhere soon however:
“Manchester United is the side that offered €190m for Neymar. He has still two years left on his contract but you all can be calm as my son is so happy here.”
Under Louis van Gaal, United spent over $150m on new players during the summer transfer window, although a significant portion of that was made up when they sold Angel Di Maria to Paris Saint-Germain. Had they been successful with Neymar, it would have taken their spending spree to a whole new level.
Since United’s failed attempt to lure him over to the Premier League, Neymar has blitzed his opposition in Spain by scoring 21 goals in 27 games across all competitions this year, forming a mouth-watering partnership with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
