Man United reportedly set for sensational Neymar move

This is it – this is the big one.

Man United might have missed out on one-time transfer targets Nicolas Otamendi and Pedro, but that will all become irrelevant if they top it all and sign Neymar.

According to the Sun, United have held secret talks for the Brazil and Barcelona star, and are ready to swoop in what would surely be the move of the summer.

Neymar cost Barcelona an estimated €57m (£41m) from Santos in 2013, and his value has only increased since then.

With Pedro having joined Chelsea, one would imagine the Spanish club are unlikely to be too keen to part with another member of their world-class attack, but a big-money bid from the Premier League giants could sway them.

United have £44.3m burning a hole in their pocket after the sale of Angel Di Maria, so I guess we should be asking “why not”?
