Man United make sensational promise to Barcelona star
Manchester United fans may well be nervous ahead of the derby, but there’s certainly something they can be excited about.
Neymar is apparently a top target for the Red Devils, with Jose Mourinho desperate to add him to their forward line.
Not only do United have issues at the back in terms of injury and also the basic quality, there’s also issues up top, with several players needing to be replaced or brought in, and that’s where Mourinho feels the Barcelona man can come in.
Mourinho however was sceptical when asked about landing the player.
He said: “‘A club like Barcelona cannot and will not lose Neymar. Although Lionel Messi is still a young player with years ahead of him, he’s almost 30, and Neymar will be the great player of Barcelona post-Messi.
“So much that I think it is like trying to break into a safe – impossible.”
Of course, we’ve seen denials from managers before, but with Chelsea also thought to be keen on the player, it remains to be seen quite if United will manage to get their man.
