Man United prepare to trigger Neymar release clause
Manchester United are ready to meet the buyout clause Barcelona inserted in Neymar’s contract, according to Catalan outlet Sport.
According to the Barcelona-based paper, the English giants will pay the requisite €200 million to secure the Brazilian’s exit from the defending La Liga champions. It’s a deal that would shatter football’s current transfer world record, already possessed by Man United, when they paid €100m to Juventus last summer for Paul Pogba.
In addition to shelling out a world-record fee, Man United are also prepared to make Neymar the highest-paid player in the Premier League by reportedly offering him a wage packet worth in excess of £415,000 a week.
