Revealed: Why Manchester United Failed to Sign This La Liga Superstar?


The summer transfer window saw a long list of players being linked with Premier League giants Manchester United, from the start to the end. Out of the many big names being linked with the Red Devils, one huge name was that of Brazilian international and Barcelona superstar Neymar. The 23-year-old forward joined the Catalan side from Santos in 2013 and helped them win the Champions League and the La Liga title last term.

Though the European media was obsessed with stories about Pedro, Ed Woodward quietly took a trip to Spain and tried to bring him to Old Trafford. However, Neymar did not leave the Nou Camp, after Barca rebuffed all bids for their prized possession.

Louis van Gaal was desperate to reinforce his squad and Catalan newspaper Sport did also agree in an interview that talks had happened though there was no paperwork. Now, Neymar’s father and his agent spoke to Boa Tarde FOX and confirmed that a bid had been tabled by, though the Spanish giants had no intention of selling, also confirming that he had no intention of leaving as well.
