Published Add your comment

Neymar is considering a future move to Manchester United, according to Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.

As reported by Sky Sports, Balague, during a question and answer session on Twitter, claimed the Barcelona superstar didn't think about completing a move to Old Trafford this past summer, but could yet end up on English soil in the future. 

United, of course, were heavily linked with a move for the Brazilian late on in the transfer window, but a move failed to materialise.

And Balague claims that the forward is in no rush to sign a new deal with the Catalans, so it remains to be seen as to whether the Red Devils step up their interest in him anytime soon. 

When asked whether Neymar considered a move to United last summer, Balague stated: "Categorically, no. Is he considering doing so in the future? Categorically, yes. It is going to be the saga of the next 12 months or more -his new contract with Barcelona. FCB want him to sign it now, he is not in a rush.

"Why? I think he feels he will not be the best player in the world while at Barcelona, with Messi leading the team. So he has to decide if he stays and waits for Messi to move on, or goes to a team that will build around him. So keep an eye on this!"

Superstar signing 

Ultimately, the signing of Neymar really would change the dynamics at Old Trafford in the club's pursuit of success. Louis van Gaal appears to be building an exciting team in Manchester, but the club are by no means the finished article. 

Neymar, then, would become the Red Devils' leading man, but it's certainly not going to be easy for the club to secure his services.

There's no way Barcelona will want want to sell him anytime soon. One thing is for sure, United will have to pay quite the sum to lure the magnificent Brazilian to the Theatre of Dreams.
