If reports are to be believed, Manchester United have surprisingly joined the race to sign Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), weeks after his extensively reported transfer interest to Barcelona could not materialise before the transfer deadline.
According to Diario Gol, United have not only joined the race to rope in Neymar but the 27-year-old is in fact interested in the deal too.
This interest from the superstar is because the move to Old Trafford would mean higher wages for him.
However, it will not be that easy for the Red Devils to make the deal work for them.
The asking price of the Brazilian is way over 200 million Euros which implies that United will have to get their financial resources together before they try and make the bid for Neymar.
However, there is another way of making the deal possible and if they follow this path it could save them a lot of money.
Notably, Manchester United jersey sponsor Chevrolet is reportedly playing a massive role in Neymar’s possible move to United.
Chevrolet are interested in uniting Paul Pogba and Neymar and if they reach the UEFA Champions League next season, they would, in fact, help them with the funds and pay a massive fraction of the deal an amount estimated at 180 million euros.
If the reports turn out to be true then that would mean the Premier League giants would have to pay a maximum of 50-80 million euros to complete the signing.
