Manchester United given go-ahead for their top target

Manchester United have been chasing Barcelona star Neymar for years. The Red Devils made an unsuccessful attempt to sign the Brazilian last year, but he decided to stay put at Nou Camp.

Now, reports in Spain are claiming that the Catalan giants have finally agreed to sell their star. Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia claims that Barca are disappointed with Neymar’s attitude and his inability to perform in big matches.

The 24-year-old’s distracting lifestyle off the pitch has also convinced the club that his future lies somewhere else.

Neymar has been blamed in many quarters for Barcelona’s recent run of poor form. He has also attracted criticism for his actions during the 2-1 defeat to Valencia at Nou Camp.

He appeared to slap Valencia right-back Antonio Barragan on the pitch and was also accused of hitting his opponent with a water bottle in the tunnel after the game.

United have maintained a long-term interest in Neymar, and they could finally get their target in the summer if they decide to pay his £150m release clause.
