Neymar admits to transfer talks involving Manchester United

Published Add your comment

Reports that emerged over the course of the summer suggesting that Neymar had been an official transfer target of Manchester United’s were laughed at at the time, but new information has come to light that might just make the idea more feasible. The player himself has confirmed he did hold talks in the summer transfer window, but that there was nothing concrete in any potential move. The Brazilian superstar also said that no offers were formally put to him, but it raises a question as to how close Louis van Gaal came to stunning world football. Elsewhere we’ve got more quotes from South Americans about possibly moving to United, with Alexandre Pato having claimed that he received an offer to transfer to Old Trafford late on transfer deadline day. The striker is currently with Corinthians, but had the option to make a Premier League switch - god only knows why it failed to materialise.
