Man United could afford Neymar if Cristiano Ronaldo leaves

Neymar is considering his future at PSG, with Man United amongst the sides credited with interest.

Manchester United Football Club find themselves in a weird situation. The Old Trafford club are yet to make any signings, despite the necessity to invest in pretty much every area of the field.

There’s no doubt some support for Cristiano Ronaldo up top wouldn’t go amiss. However, the latest story would require the Portugal international to leave first…

RMC Sport link Neymar with a potential Old Trafford move. Yes, really..

According to the story, the world-class star is considering his future with Paris Saint-Germain.

Typically, United are amongst the sides credited with some sort of link to Neymar. After all, only a few clubs in the world could bring in the Brazilian due to the cost. Both Chelsea and Newcastle United are also named,

Apparently, it’s written that United have the funds to sign Neymar if they so choose, but it’d rely on Cristiano Ronaldo moving on, rather than the Brazil star playing alongside the Greatest of All Time.

You’d have to assume that having huge wages for two of the best players within the sport just isn’t possible right now. Rather, the club are looking to make that weekly wage budget stretch as far as possible, rather than a big portion of it going to just two players.

Honestly, I’m not sure there’s any genuine truth to this story yet. It feels like RMC Sport are just throwing United’s name into it for a few extra clicks – though I would understand the need to go out there and sign a marquee player if Ronaldo was to leave.

I don’t reckon we’d see United forcing Ronnie out of the door anytime soon in a direct effort to bring Neymar in, mind.

Do you think a player like Neymar is what Man United need right now? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
