Neymar could very well make the move to Manchester this summer after it was reported in the Sunday Express that his father (Neymar Snr.) has urged the Brazilian to leave Barcelona for the Premier League. His father hinted that Old Trafford would be the most suitable situation for his son in order to escape the rather large shadow of Lionel Messi at Barcelona and truly establish himself as the world’s best striker.
If Neymar was to ditch La Liga for England then it would spark a fierce battle between Manchester United and Manchester City for the £100 million rated winger’s signature. Although Neymar arrived after Pep left the Catalan giants, he will be well aware of what it is like to play under him from many of his teammates and has even expressed a desire to experience it for himself one day.
Neymar, who signed for Barcelona from Santos in 2013, has scored 104 goals in 184 appearances for Barcelona making him a vital addition to any team and both City and United will be on high alert with this news that he would be willing to make the move to England.
