FOOTBALL: Manchester United believed to be behind mystery £144 million Neymar bid

The Sun claims that Barcelona star Neymar could be on his way to the Premier League in the summer, thanks to a slip of the tongue from his father. The report claims that Manchester United currently lead the chase, with Chelsea and Manchester City also lurking with intent closely behind.

Neymar Sr., whose son is being probed by a Spanish court for alleged corruption and fraud, told a judge that an unnamed club has offered £144 million for his son, and it wasn't Real Madrid. The Sun mention that in August, they broke a story saying that United officials were in talks with the Ballon d'Or nominee over a potential move to Old Trafford.
The 23-year-old already has 19 goals and 13 assists for Barcelona this season, and thanks to the arrival of Luis Suarez in the summer, has helped to bring the Catalonian's attacking options to a new level. But with rumours of the forward talking to Real Madrid in Spain, who's to say that he couldn't have been talking to Manchester United, as they look to make a statement of intent to their fans and the world of football.
