Barcelona have no plans to cash in on their Brazilian superstar Neymar, even if they do agree to sign Ezequiel Lavezzi from Paris Saint-Germain.

A report in the Mirror claims that a deal for the Argentinian ace may have been agreed ahead of the January transfer window, but his arrival will have no influence on Neymar's future at Camp Nou.

That comes as bad news to the bigwigs at Manchester United, who dipped deep into their cavernous pockets to try and bring the 23-year-old to Old Trafford in the summer.

A report in Spanish newspaper Sport claims Ed Woodward offered to make Neymar the most expensive footballer of all time, and by some considerable distance. A bid worth an incredible £139m was launched, but the La Liga outfit were not convinced.

But with Barcelona's transfer embargo set to be lifted when the clock strikes 12 on New Year's Eve, there were whispers that Lavezzi was due to arrive as a potential replacement for the Brazil international.

Financial concerns

The Nou Camp club are believed to have some financial worries on the horizon and are struggling to get the best value for money with regards to shirt sponsorships et al. Indeed, it was those same struggles that saw them delay contract talks with Neymar until 2016.

That has not worried Neymar, however, who is still very keen to extend his stay in Catalonia and, it seems, Barcelona have no intention of cashing in.

So, Manchester United's financial prowess may open up plenty of doors in the transfer market, but when it comes to signing genuine world-class stars, they are still falling well short.
