The transfer rumors are running across the world for quite some time now. And the biggest one to date has been the one which links Brazilian superstar Neymar to Manchester United. It has been reported in a number of news that Manchester United are keen to bring in Neymar before the start of the next season and are ready to come to an agreement and meet the release clause in his contract with Barcelona.
However, this is for the first time we have seen Jose Mourinho addressing the talks regarding Manchester United’s pursuit of Neymar. He has been quoted saying that, “We will not break into the vault. I think it is impossible.” He also added, “Neymar is absurd. A club like Barcelona cannot and will not lose Neymar.” This somewhat drops all the possibilities that there were on the rise regarding Neymar’s arrival in Manchester. In fact, this is not for the first time that, Neymar has been linked with the English giants.
But it remains to be seen whether this is just a part of the plan on behalf of Manchester United think-tank in order to elude Neymar from the Catalans. This is because the world has already seen United flexing their muscles when it comes to issues related to huge bids for talented players. Paul Pogba’s move was a huge example of what Manchester United can do if required to. Hence, despite Mourinho’s words stating that Neymar is going to be the next great player for Barcelona, the chances are still there that The Red Devils will try to secure Neymar’s services, however, minimal it might be.
Amidst all these talks, it has been reported that Manchester United are also in pursuit of Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez. He has been on the United radar for a long time now with Liverpool being the prime competitor for United in this case. And reports have suggested that finally, United might be ready to sign the youngster from the Los Rojiblancos.
Gimenez was a superstar for Atletico in the previous season as he was literally a wall of the defense in spite of the fact that he is still in his early days in his career. However, in the ongoing season, he has seen his role being diminished to a simple rotation player due to the supreme form of Savic and Godin in the heart of Atletico Madrid defense. So it might just be the right time for Manchester United to swoop in and bring the youngster to Old Trafford. What might work in their favor is the fact that it has been reported that the Uruguayan is interested in making a move to Manchester.
At this point in time, we have a really exciting plot developing. And to keep an eye on that, you need to get back to this thread. Do not forget to come back and get all the latest update related to Manchester United transfer rumors.
