La Liga Transfer News: Man Utd eye Barcelona’s Neymar, Real Madrid explain Morata price


Barcelona star Neymar is reportedly wanted at Manchester United this summer.

After a goal-shy season under Jose Mourinho last term, the Red Devils boss is planning an overhaul of his attack to turn them back into Premier League title contenders.

And Spanish outlet Diario Gol claim the Brazil international is wanted at Old Trafford after the club turned their attentions away from Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo.

United are reportedly willing to meet his £170million buyout clause with club chiefs thinking he could have a huge impact on and off the pitch.

The Brazil international has helped Barcelona win La Liga twice and the Champions League in the last four years, playing a starring role along the way, and his status as one of football’s biggest names could lead to a big economic windfall.

Real Madrid have given Manchester United three reasons why they are demanding between £60m-£70million for Alvaro Morata, reports claim.

United are keen to sign the Spain international after failing in their pursuit of Antoine Griezmann.

And AS say Zinedine Zidane’s side have now explained why they are demanding such a huge amount for a player that spent much of last term stuck on the bench.


Real have supposedly told United that he would be a sound investment for the future, while they also said the fact he plays regularly for Spain makes him an important asset.

And Zidane also highlighted the lack of top forwards currently on the market, with Griezmann and Romelu Lukaku set to be plying their trade away from Old Trafford next term.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is interesting Atletico Madrid, reports claim.

Manchester United opted to release the injured striker despite his 28 goals across all competitions last term.

LA Galaxy and Real Madrid have both been linked with a summer swoop.

But Italian newspaper Tuttosport are reporting that Atletico have now joined the race for his signature.

Manager Diego Simeone is said to be an admirer – though his high salary and age could complicate any potential deal.
