Manchester United Offered An Opportunity To Recruit Neymar: Right Choice For The Red Devils?

According to a recent report by Mundo Deportivo (translated by the Daily Express), Manchester United have been offered a chance to secure the services of Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar Jr. during this summer transfer period. The same source has stated that PSG have alerted five clubs of the Brazilian’s availability this summer. The five clubs include Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus, Bayern Munich along with the Red Devils.

Mundo Deportivo (translated by the Daily Express) has also claimed that the French champions are demanding £200m which they paid to sign the South American sensation back in 2017.

Neymar’s Injury Prone Spell In The Ligue 1

Neymar was a frustrated member of the PSG squad in the previous campaign. He failed to deliver in the UEFA Champions League which saw the Ligue 1 giants get knocked out by Manchester United in the Round of 16. He also had a poor run with injuries last season which has derailed his career in European football.

A change of scenery this summer could help the Brazilian rekindle his career and become one of the best players in Europe. Thus, a big-money move to Old Trafford makes sense as he would be getting the perfect platform to showcase his talents at the highest level.

Since joining Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona in the summer of 2017, the former Santos striker has featured in a total of 58 matches for the Ligue giants, registering 51 goals while securing 29 assists across all fronts. 

Neymar has also earned a lot of experience at the international level after playing for Brazil in 97 matches while scoring 60 goals for them thus far. There is no denying that the Brazilian is a natural goal-getter. However, he needs to work on his fitness so that he can overcome his recent injury concerns over the next few years.

What Will The Brazilian Striker Bring To The Theatre Of Dreams?

The PSG superstar is one of the fastest players in Europe and can make some dangerous runs down the left flank. Neymar has a lot of tricks under his belt, and he often uses them to get the better of his marker when left isolated in a 1v1 situation. Furthermore, Neymar is a prolific goal-scorer in the final third but can be a bit selfish at times when an opportunity presents itself in the offensive end of the field.

Will Neymar Be An Ideal Option For The Red Devils?

The addition of a wide player of Neymar’s ilk will undoubtedly bolster Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s attacking options at Old Trafford (duh!). He will not only improve the quality of the Man United first-team but could also definitely help them secure a top 4 place in the Premier League next season. Thus, Neymar will be a perfect choice for the Red Devils to help them in their quest to win some silverware in the coming years.

However, the question remains how they will be able to attract the Brazilian without the pull of the Champions League. Also, let us not ever go to the question of how United will be able to afford the transfer fee and Neymar’s wages.
