Neymar is in line to be handed an incredible contract worth £150million over six years by Barcelona, as the Catalans seek to end the interest coming from Manchester United.

Over the course of the summer transfer window the Red Devils were tentatively linked with the Brazilian superstar as Louis van Gaal aimed to add a world-class star to his ranks.

Speculation abound

Naturally, the speculation was scoffed at by many, with Barca having no intention of letting a prized asset who sits just one rung below Lionel Messi leave.

However, according to the Daily Mail, it seems the Catalans are taking the interest seriously, with Neymar due to enter contract renewal talks with December.

Astounding rumours

Incredible rumours suggest that a deal that would be worth £150m over six years could be placed on the table, with the powers that be at the Nou Camp keen for Neymar to drive the club towards another era of dominance.

Now, whilst such figures are easily bandied about in reports, looking at the financial implications in reality can leave one very sceptical indeed.

For a start Neymar’s new deal - again, as per the Mail - would put him just behind Messi in terms of wages, with the Argentina international the highest paid player in the world.

No United deal

It would also means that Neymar, just 23, might be in line for an even greater deal in the future - a mind-boggling concept on its own.

In any case it looks as though United won’t be landing the Brazil star anytime soon, and Van Gaal might well be better served focusing on the likes of Gareth Bale and Thomas Muller.

United fans, do you think there will ever be a time when you can land Neymar? Let us know in the comments box below.
