BARCA STAR IN OLD TRAFFORD SIGHTS
Jose Mourinho is on the verge of being appointed as manager when Louis van Gaal is finally put out of the fans’ misery.
And the Reds have been alerted by Barcelona’s money worries that will force the Catalans to sell at least one of their megastars.
Neymar is the man in Old Trafford sights and his agent father has spilled the beans on a potential transfer.
He says Barcelona have been offered £140million by a mystery team for his son’s services.
All he would say is the club is question is not Real Madrid.
United are the prime suspects as they look for their own sensational signings to compete with neighbours City bringing in Pep Guardiola.
Neymar has two years left on his deal and it’s easy to see why any club would want the 24-year-old.
He’s scored 75 goals in 121 games for Barca.
Spanish football expert Guillem Balague said: “Barcelona cannot afford to give new contracts to Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar as it stands – financially they do not have the power.
“They need to bring a lot of money in, if they do that they will be able to keep them, but if they don’t they may have to get rid.
“That’s why Neymar keeps leaving the door open for United.”
