Man United ready to splash £230m on Brazilian winger

Manchester United are ready to battle with Real Madrid for the services of Neymar this summer.

The Brazilian superstar is currently playing his football at Paris-Saint Germain following on from his 2017 world-record transfer from Barcelona. The 27-year-old winger has scored 48 goals in 53 games the club, and also picked up last season’s Ligue 1 title.

According to the Daily Record, the Red Devils are already planning their summer signings with the Brazil international touted as their No. 1 priority. They are willing to smash the world record transfer fee and pay around £230 million to secure his signature.

The Red Devils have also been told that Neymar would not rule out a move to Old Trafford club and that he is becoming frustrated with life at the French giants.

Both Manchester United and Real Madrid are believed to be willing to meet Neymar’s existing salary as well.

It will remain to be seen if the 20-times English champions will decide to approach this summer transfer window, but it is likely they will want to overhaul their squad under their newly-appointed permanent manager, whoever he may be.

Manchester United’s next club fixture is against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday night where Neymar will not participate, and Edinson Cavani, along with Marco Veratti are set to miss the crucial clash.

Manchester United are also understood to be monitoring Argentina striker Paulo Dybala who is frustrated with his role a the club after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo.
