Manchester United wanted to sign Neymar during the summer transfer window, that much has been made clear. A new report in Spanish daily, Sport, claims that the Red Devils offered as much as £280,000-a-week in wages for the Brazilian to join them - that equates to around £14.65million a year. It’s needless to say that Barcelona rejected their offer, otherwise Neymar would probably be a United player now, but it does speak volumes over how highly Louis van Gaal clearly rates the youngster. Neymar’s father, Neymar Sr., also confirmed that United had called Barca, but got flatly rebuffed with their proposition. Elsewhere, Southampton boss Ronald Koeman has looked to allay the fears of United fans regarding Memphis Depay, insisting that the Dutch star will turn out OK. Depay has struggled of late at Old Trafford, but Koeman said he had plenty of time to adapt and improve.
