Manchester United ‘in secret talks’ to buy Barcelona superstar

In what is the most unrealistic transfer rumour of the summer so far, Manchester United Football Club have been in ‘secret talks’ to sign Barcelona’s Neymar, according to The Sun.

Now from the get-go this seems like the most unbelievable transfer story ever invented. Neymar had a wonderful season at the Camp Nou last year and won all there is to win in European football, so why would he move to United at this point in his career?

He’d probably cost in excess of £100million too. Barcelona paid £56million for his services a couple of years ago, and since then his stature in the game has only risen and lets not forget he is only 23.

Its clear Manchester United are after a marquee signing this summer but I am 100% certain it will not be Neymar. Hopefully Edward Woodward doesn’t waste too much time on this one, because it simply isn’t happening.
