Neymar and Barcelona will hold a meeting in the coming days as the Catalans look to tie down the Brazilian superstar to a new long-term deal. 

This has been reported by, who claim that the Spanish giants will make the forward the club's second highest paid player - behind Argentine superstar Lionel Messi. 

In fact, the report claims that, with the player's current contract at the Nou Camp set to come to an end in 2018, he will be offered an extension, which could keep him in Spain's elite division until  2020.

Neymar, of course, has been linked with a move to Manchester United in recent time, with the same report suggesting the Red Devils made an enquiry about the forward during their failed negotiations over Spanish international Pedro. 

It's far from certain as to whether the Manchester United hierarchy will step up their interest in Neymar anytime soon, but Barcelona appear to be determined to keep the 23-year-old at the club for some time to come. 

Impossible, but United must invest 

Let's be honest, there's no way Neymar will be arriving at Old Trafford before the close of the transfer window. Ultimately, though, Ed Woodward must deliver a new striker for Louis van Gaal in the next week. 

United are clearly lacking something up top, and are in desperate need of improvement sooner rather than later, so something must be done. At the end of the day, captain Wayne Rooney doesn't look quite right leading the line in Manchester, so the Red Devils must secure the signature of a big name if they are serious about overhauling Chelsea at the summit of the Premier League table.

One thing's for sure, it looks set to be an extremely busy period for all involved at Manchester United. 

United fans: Who do you want your club to sign before the close of the window? Have your say below!
