Man United have tabled world record bid for marquee superstar

Manchester United have tabled a stunning offer of £145.6m for Barcelona superstar Neymar, according to reports from Cadena Cope.

Such a sum would blow the £86m Real Madrid paid for Gareth Bale out of the water.

Neymar’s father, Neymar Sr., recently revealed that a massive offer of £145.6m had been tabled for his son, but refused to reveal the identity of the club to have put it forward.

However Cadena Cope now claim that he has told them that Man United are the side to have made the eye-watering proposal.

Such a fee is enough to trigger the release clause in Neymar’s Barcelona contract, thus leaving the ultimate decision in his own hands.

The 23-year-old would surely expect a huge salary to turn his back on the Nou Camp, where he’s part of, arguably, the best attacking set-up in club football, alongside Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.
