Man United summer target puts Barcelona contract talks on hold

Manchester United looked to have been boosted in their pursuit of Barcelona star Neymar after he is yet to agree to the terms of a new deal, according to reports from the Express.

The 23-year-old was targeted by the Premier League giants over the summer as manager Louis van Gaal was in search of another forward.

He even confirmed that he held talks with United during the recent window, but did not personally receive any offers from the club.

“We had conversations, but there was nothing concrete,” he said

“I heard that there were offers, but none made it to me.”

However, it is now said that the Brazil international has stalled talks over a new contract with the La Liga champions amid speculation that the forward was considering a switch to Old Trafford.

Barca are looking to convince Neymar to remain at club by making him one of the highest paid players at the Camp Nou, with wages of about £200,000-a-week.

The Red Devils are still short of options in attack despite the £36million signing of Anthony Martial from Monaco during the summer.
