Manchester United have been dealt a major transfer blow, as one of the players they were chasing over the summer has decided to stay at his current club and sign a new contract. Neymar told BeIn sports that he will pen a new deal at FC Barcelona, ending all interest from Louis van Gaal.
“The renewal is underway. I have many years of contract here and I’ll sign, calm. The fans have to be calm,” he told beIN Sports.
At the end of the day, Manchester United were always going to struggle to prise Neymar away from FC Barcelona. The Brazilian is in sensational form at this point in time and clearly loving life at the Camp Nou.
I’d imagine that there is no way we’ll see him at Manchester United unless his form dramatically changes for the worst and the Catalan side decide to sell him.
