Man Utd ‘gets Set for £173m bid for Brazil’s Neymar

By Kenneth Kabiri

 Manchester United are ready for marquee signing during  the summer of  Brazil’s  Neymar for a record- breaking  200million Euro (£173m)

offer for the Barcelona and Brazil forward.   This was disclosed by a  Spanish Sports newspaper known as “Sport”.

The Old Trafford club are willing to activate the release clause written into the Brazilian’s contract to bring him to the Premier League.

 Neymar, one of the top three players in the world would be offered a whopping  weekly wages of £416,000, beating the record set by Paul  Pogba when he joined the club last year to play in the 2016/2017 English Season.

On top of the huge fee they would give Barca, United are ready to pay Neymar €25m (£21m), or £416,000-a-week, including endorsements to lure him make the switch to England.

Last week, Neymar admitted he admired a number of Premier League sides – including United. ‘The Premier League is a championship that amazes me,’ Neymar said. ‘I like the playing style and the teams. And who knows, someday, I would like to play at it, yes. ‘I admire Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool — these are the teams that are always there fighting. ‘And then you have high-level coaches like Mourinho and Guardiola.

These are coaches with whom any player would like to work.’ Neymar had developed into one of the world’s finest players since joining Barcelona in the summer of 2013.

 Earlier this month he played a key role as the Nou Camp side progressed against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, overturning a four-goal first-leg deficit in a dramatic style. The 25-year-old got the comeback underway with a stunning free-kick in the 88th minute as Barcelona trailed 3-1 at home. And then he converted a pressure penalty during added time prior to Sergi Roberto’s late winner as Barcelona reached the quarter-finals of Europe’s Prestigious club football, the Champion’s League.
