Man Utd Determined To Beat Chelsea For Barcelona Superstar Neymar
It has been reported that Manchester United are ready to outbid Chelsea for Barcelona star Neymar this summer.
Sport says United are determined to do all they can to sign the Brazil international.
Chelsea are willing to pay €180 million for Neymar, however United will go further – meeting his €200 million buyout clause.
Jose Mourinho is driving the deal, speaking directly with the player – and regularly. The United manager has told Neymar leaving Barca would be a step forward in his career as he’d get out from under Lionel Messi’s shadow.
Along with meeting his clause, United are also offering Neymar a contract worth €25 million-a-year – making him the highest paid in England.
Chelsea are also pushing hard, but will not consider meeting his buyout clause.
