Rumour: Neymar to Manchester United, contract talks


Brazilian international Neymar, 22, may be sold this summer due to a financial crisis at La Liga giants Barcelona.

The striker earns around £70k a week, but is demanding a bumper increase to £300k to take him on par with La Ligas top earners Lionel Messi and Cristano Ronaldo.

Barcelona are reluctant to commit to a wage increase, but are desperate to keep their star man. With the club already committed to huge deals for Messi and Suarez, they fear another mega deal for Neymar may cripple the club financially.

This uncertainty has put Manchester United on high alert. Representatives from United have made it clear to Neymar that they would be more than willing to match his wage demands, should the player choose to leave Barcelona.

United are not the only club who are interested to Neymar, both PSG and Bayern Munich have also indicated their willingness to offer the player the wage is he demanding.
