Manchester sold their record signing Angel Di Maria in the summer transfer window and wanted to lure Brazilian playmaker Neymar from Barcelona.
The Samba star himself confirmed (BBC) that he had conversations regarding a move to Old Trafford but there was nothing concrete and he eventually stayed with the Catalan giants.
Now, renowned journalist Guillem Balague has claimed (Sky Sports) that Neymar will be looking to leave the Nou Camp in future to become the best player in the world. Metro claim that he will be considering a move to Manchester United after leaving Barca.
The 23-year-old playmaker has scored 193 goals so far in his club career and without a shadow of a doubt, he is a world class player.
Neymar has got the potential to become the best player in the world but staying with Barcelona may not help that cause because at Barca, Messi is the main man. United must do all to secure his signature as well.
