The Brazil superstar has been continuously linked with a potential move to Old Trafford in recent months and Fichajes claim a world-record offer will be made in January
Manchester United are set to launch a massive £143.9 million bid for Barcelona superstar Neymar in January, according to Fichajes.
The Red Devils have long been linked with a move for the Brazil international, who has been named among the top three candidates to win the Ballon d’Or alongside Barca team-mate Lionel Messi and Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to the Spanish news outlet, United boss Louis van Gaal is set to be given £200m to spend in the mid-season transfer window as he aims to bolster his squad – and will look to spend the majority of his war chest on Neymar.
The 23-year-old is reported to be happy at Camp Nou, though former Barcelona president Joan Laporta claimed last month that the club may be forced to sell a marquee player in order to balance the books.
United may be more than happy to oblige the Catalan giants, with their bid for Neymar set to eclipse the world-record £86m that Real Madrid paid to acquire Gareth Bale from Tottenham.
