Neymar courting English clubs

Brazilian superstar Neymar is courting English clubs as he wants be the highest paid player in Europe.

Our Football Insider Graeme Bailey has been told that the 25-year-old’s representatives have been making contact with England’s biggest clubs – as they are the ones who would be able to entertain paying him in excess of £400,000, something which Barcelona are reluctant to do.

Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Barca’s Lionel Messi both earn around £375,000 and are the highest paid players in European football with Chinese based duo Carlos Tevez and Oscar the only players in the world on more.

Neymar believes that he is worthy of the price, and the idea of landing him has been floated around the Premier League, with Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City all intimating they would consider a deal.

To land Neymar would be a hugely expensive exercise, with his release clause being £175million before his wages are taken into account.


But our Football Insider Graeme Bailey understands that Neymar is emerging as a possibility for some of England’s biggest clubs.

“People connected with Neymar have been reaching out and letting it be known, the possibly numbers involved,” he confirmed to

“It would be an incredible deal for anyone to do, but it would be hugely difficult to get done – but the fact that United, Chelsea and City believe the numbers are not out of their reach, highlights that this is a possibility.”

We spoke to BetVictor’s head of ante post football Michael Triffitt about Neymar, as they cut him to 8/1 to move to Manchester United.

“Manchester United and Chelsea have been linked with Barcelona star Neymar in recent days but both would have to break the bank to land the Brazilian,” he told

“The player has hinted the Premier League would appeal but whether that is this summer still seems a longshot with the Red Devils 8/1 to capture his signature and the Blues 12/1.”
