Neymar is disgruntled at Barcelona and is encouraging Manchester United to step up their interest in him, according to Duncan Castles.
He’d be extremely difficult and expensive to sign, but Man United are one of the few clubs that have the funds available for his transfer fee and wages.
The 25-year-old is said to be unhappy with life at the Nou Camp and is urging Jose Mourinho to continue his pursuit of the Brazillian.
He endured a difficult campaign under Luis Enrique last season and has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, even though Jose Mourinho previously stated it would be impossible to get a deal over the line.
The Portuguese boss did claim that United have made their interest in the player known over the last two years, and with Neymar currently disgruntled, it could be the perfect time to make a move.
United are unhappy with the lack of progress made on deals by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and was hoping to complete the vital signings before the club start their US tour on Monday.
It’s still not enough to have me at the edge of my seat, as there’s a slim chance he’ll make the move, but it’s clear Mourinho is trying to make his intentions known.
