Manchester United plot sensational move for world-class forward

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 19:50 Dec 3rd 2016
 

Manchester United may be off the pace in the Premier League at the moment, but they are well on the way towards claiming some silverware in the EFL Cup.

The likes of David de Gea and Paul Pogba are world-class players who can serve the club for years to come, but Jose Mourinho wants more individuals of this quality at Old Trafford.

NEYMAR

If reports in the Daily Record are to be believed, then the Red Devils are considering making an eye-watering £180m move for Neymar next summer.

Although prizing the 24-year-old away from Barcelona is unlikely to prove easy, his burning desire to step out from Lionel Messi’s shadow could help the English side’s cause:
