Neymar transfer value will rise by €30m as Barcelona move to price Man United out of record deal

Posted by

Earlier this month it was reported by talkSPORT that Manchester United, Real Madrid and PSG were interested in signing Neymar and that the Barcelona star was available for €200.

It is now being claimed by Mundo Deportivo that the 24-year-old Brazilian is likely to sign a new contract at the Nou Camp in the coming weeks.

The Spanish publication report that the new deal will include a €230m release clause, which will see Barca’s Neymar transfer value rise by €30m.

Barca are seemingly very keen to keep hold of Neymar and one suspects that €230 – £187m – would prove too much for Man United.

New United manager Jose Mourinho was given £200m to spend on transfers this summer, according to The Mirror.

And, considering the Red Devils have already took a chunk out of Mourinho’s budget splashing out on Eric Bailly from Villarreal, Neymar’s increased valuation will probably price United out of what would – even with his previous buyout clause – have to be a world-record move.
