English Premier League giants Manchester United are all set to break the bank and fend off competition from Real Madrid for Brazilian and PSG attacker Neymar this summer.
United are willing to pay record £444million to PSG and bring him to Old Trafford. French giants successfully completed the world transfer record when they met Neymar’s Barcelona buy-out clause of £198m in the last summer’s transfer window.
Spanish giants are struggling this season in La Liga and are looking to strengthen their attacking options next summer and Neymar is their No.1 target but according to reports in England and Spain they will be unable to match United’s bid.
United have previously even spoken to Brazilian’s agent but nothing materialised and Neymar joined PSG. Madrid are looking to offload Karim Benzema, who is struggling big time this season and see Naymar as the marquee signing.
United manager Jose Mourinho has already been successful once by luring Paul Pogba under the noses of Real Madrid and hierarchy at United are already pretty confident of getting Neymar, if Brazilian is willing to make a move away from French giants.
