In a shocking development, it is being reported that Brazilian superstar Neymar might have secretly agreed on terms to join Premier League giants Manchester United, as he looks to make a move out of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
The report also states that he is no longer interested in moving back to Barcelona, and they are also not interested in him.
Here are further details.
The development comes as Neymar believes that Barcelona lacked interest in him and they did not try enough to sign him back.
Meanwhile, United would reportedly also play him a salary of €50 million.
Right now, Neymar is reportedly unhappy at PSG.
He has not been able to make the desired impact with the French champions. Further, he has remained mostly injury prone, as the club missed his services in a lot of important matches.
Meanwhile, he tried to force a move back to Barcelona. However, there wasn't any concrete answer on it by the Spanish champions.
Recently, Barcelona CEO Oscar Grau had said that while the club was interested in signing Neymar back, their financial stability compelled them to think otherwise.
Meanwhile, Barca's La Liga rivals and giants Real Madrid too were reportedly interested in acquiring the services of Neymar, but pulled out eventually citing his longevity.
"We made a very big effort to get Neymar, we did everything possible. We made two offers, one including players and one without them, but we got the feeling PSG never wanted to sell him," Grau had said on this failed move.
As of now, Neymar has to stay with PSG for quite a few months, regardless he likes it or not.
While he still has a chance to move out in January, it is highly unlikely that the clubs would make such a big investment during that transfer window.
Moreover, Neymar would try his luck at the UEFA Champions League success with PSG.
Neymar had made a genuine impact after moving to Barca.
However, the same has not been the case this time, especially given his injuries.
Analyzing his move to England, it could get even worse as English football is known to be brutal.
While other Brazilians have had success in England, Neymar's injury-prone body might act as a hindrance.
While this might sound as exciting news, especially for the United fans, the author doubts the credibility of the report.
Moreover, he also questions if United are willing to make such an investment, as it is something that they have traditionally not done.
But, in case United go ahead with the deal, it could be their signing of the decade.
