If reports are to be believed, English club Manchester United is swooping in for Barcelona star striker Neymar Jr for a record signing of £200 million, double that of what Man U signed for Paul Pogba.

Jose Mourinho has long nourished a growing interest in the Brazilian player, and top that desire with Manchester’s financial ability to purchase any players they like, the Red Devils might be able to sign the player.

Currently, Neymar has a £180 million release clause with the Catalan giants. It is believed that the number will increase massively during the summer transfer season if any club expresses their interest in acquiring the player.

Next Lionel Messi, Neymar is one of the most important players for Barcelona. It cannot be expected that Barcelona will not let off Neymar without a fight.
