Neymar ready to quit PSG as Manchester United ready bid
News has surfaced that Manchester United are willing to go on a collision with Real Madrid to sign Neymar Jr. next season. The Brazilian has reportedly shown an interest to move beyond Paris and try his magical feet elsewhere. Manchester United were disillusioned with the inflated prices this winter transfer window, and thus did not sign any player. Here're further details.
Manchester United's highest purchase till date is Paul Pogba, whom they bought back from Juventus for £89.3 million. However, now that they are aiming to pick Neymar up, they are ready to shatter the club's transfer record. However, United will have stiff competition from Real Madrid as they also have been interested in signing Neymar for a long time.
United have two other two transfer targets lined up and signing any one of these three will be a huge deal. They are apparently trying to bid for long-term target Gareth Bale and Juventus' Paulo Dybala. However, it is unlikely Dybala will sign for United as Juventus have been better in both national and European football than United for quite some time now.
United are not the only club interested in signing Dybala. Real Madrid and Manchester City are also monitoring the situation and are interested in the Argentine talent. City can sign him as a replacement for Sergio Aguero, who despite being in fiery form, is nearing an age where he cannot be expected to perform in every single match. Dybala can be an ideal replacement.
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has a message for the club in how to proceed in buying fresh talents for the club. Ferdinand wants Manchester United to spend money and use scouts to sign the best young talents throughout the world. "This is what Man United need to do now...and sweep up Europe and the world. That's what we used to do", he said.
