Man United – Deal Agreed, Ex-Santos Star had Conversations

Manchester United James WilsonManchester United have started the new season in fantastic fashion and are currently second in the Barclays Premier League, two points behind rivals Manchester City.

The Red Devils spent heavy cash to lure top stars in the summer transfer window but Louis van Gaal is also focusing on grooming quality young talent.

The Red Devils have handed exciting forward James Wilson a new contract (Official Website) that will keep the 19-year-old starlet at Old Trafford till 2019. Man United lack depth in their strike-force department and renewing Wilson’s deal was the right thing to do.

On the other hand, Ex Santos star and current Barcelona superstar Neymar has confirmed that he held talks (BBC) about joining the Red Devils in the summer but there was nothing really serious.

Neymar claimed:

“We had conversations, but there was nothing concrete.”

“I heard that there were offers but none were made to me.”

The 23-year-old Brazilian international is one of the best playmakers in the world and United must try to lure him in future.
