Neymar speaks out about Manchester United rumours


Manchester United’s reported pursuit of Neymar has seemingly ended, after the player unequivocally dismissed suggestions he’d be leaving Barcelona.

While most football fans dismissed the rumours, they continued to gather pace amid rumours of United’s chief executive Ed Woodward arriving in Spain to broker a deal.

However, that can all be forgotten now as Neymar addressed the rumours personally after Barcelona’s 1-0 win over Malaga, saying: “I know nothing of Manchester, I’m outside of all this and don’t listen to it.”

In fairness, Neymar, we doubt many Barca fans were ever too worried that you’d be playing for United this season, but it’s nice to be nice.

In completely unrelated news, Neymar is reportedly close to signing a new contract with Barcelona.
