Manchester United are preparing a stunning £350 Million double raid for Lionel Messi and Neymar, according to reports. Barcelona are struggling to hold onto the superstars as their wage are apparently crippling the La Liga giants.
The Sun says United are preparing a huge bid of £350 Million to bring both players to Old Trafford. The Red Devils have the fund to meet both Messi and Neymar’s buyout clause to close the transfer and offer them huge salaries.
It’s highly unlikely that Barcelona would sell two of their most prized asset at the same time, but the paper adds that Barca’s wage bill is currently 73% of revenue and that can’t continue. So definitely; at least one out of the three South American deadly strike forces (Messi, Suarez and Neymar) would exit the Catalan based club during the coming season to help reduce the financial Burden currently facing the club.
Lionel Messi looks the most likely of the three players to exit Barcelona; the Argentine is currently facing a case of tax evasion with the Spanish authorities and there has been an on-going report that he wants to leave Spain; while many pundits and journalist alike see Neymar as the future of Barcelona.
