Neymar shows interest in joining Manchester United
Barcelona striker Neymar shows interest to join Manchester United. The English club has been pursuing the Neymar transfer and are attempting to bring the player to Premier League before the 1st September. However, a transfer is most likely to happen next summer. But with the current level of interest with which United are pursuing Neymar, a move before 1 September is a possibility.
Neymar is an integral part of the Barcelona attack and he played a crucial role in the Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey victories of the club last season. Neymar was also the top scorer of Champions league along with Ronaldo and Messi. The sources close to the player have revealed that he is very much interested in joining Manchester United and he is very impressed by the clubs history. Last Monday, the executive vice chairman of United, Ed Woodward was in Barcelona. It was speculated at the time that he was in the city to pursue the Pedro deal which could not happen. But now it is being believed that the purpose of his visit was to further the efforts of landing Neymar.
It should be noted that Neymar currently has 3 years contract remaining with Barcelona and his contract will end in 2018. Manchester United must be keeping it in consideration that the players current interest in transfer can be an effort to extract a more lucrative deal from Barcelona.
