Man United in talks to sign Barcelona star Neymar

Manchester United are reportedly holding talks over a shock move for Barcelona superstar Neymar, according to the Metro.

United have been on the hunt for a new forward this summer, with Louis van Gaal hopeful of boosting his attacking options ahead of a fresh assault for the Premier League title this season.

The Red Devils have been linked with a number of high profile names already, and just days after missing out on Barcelona winger Pedro to Chelsea (via BBC) a report in The Sun is claiming that United are now holding talks with Neymar.

Neymar does have a release clause in his contract set at £137.8million (via Metro), and if Barcelona were to sell they would likely not stand to lose him for a penny less than that figure.

However, the Brazilian international has been tipped to pen a new deal with the La Liga champions, but United are hopeful of muscling in on the talks and bring him to Old Trafford.
