Man United odds of signing 24-year-old superster cut by bookmakers
Barcelona striker Neymar is 4/1 to move to Manchester United this summer, according to bookmakers
Bookmakers have slashed Manchester United’s odds of completing a stunning potential deal to sign Barcelona striker Neymar this summer.
The Red Devils have been linked with an audacious swoop to sign the Brazil international in the summer transfer window as Jose Mourinho look to bolster his attacking options.
Neymar would certainly represent a marquee signing for Manchester United as Mourinho looks to restore the feel-good factor to Old Trafford after a tough spell since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
The 24-year-old is thought to be unhappy with the lack of new signings at Camp Nou under new manger Ernesto Valverde after Luis Enrique quit at the end of the 2016-17 season.
And English bookmakers Ladbrokes have revealed that Neymar is now just 4/1 to move to Manchester United from La Liga giants Barcelona in the summer transfer window.
Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati said in a press release sent to The Sport Review: “There’s a long way to go, but the latest Neymar rumours have sparked our traders into action.
“And such a huge cut in odds over the weekend suggests the Red Devils might just smash the world record transfer fee for the second year in a row.”
Manchester United smashed the world transfer record last summer after the Red Devils completed an £89m deal to sign France international Paul Pogba from Serie A giants Juventus last summer.
The 20-time english champions have only signed Sweden defender Victor Lindelof in a £30.7m deal from Portuguese champions Benfica so far this summer.
