The staggering fee Man United would have to pay for Neymar has been revealed

Tom Victor

It seems that money is no object as Manchester United keep up their pursuit of Neymar.

The transfer fee alone for the Barcelona star would represent a world record by some distance, likely making him the world’s first £100m footballer.

Neymar has a release clause of £130m, but The Sun report that once taxes and a bumper five-year contract are added into the mix, United’s outlay could be somewhere in the region of £240m.

United do not seem put off by the mammoth fee, which would potentially more than double the British record £59.7m they paid for Angel Di Maria.
