THE FATHER OF Barcelona striker Neymar confirmed that Manchester United had tried to lure the star to the Premier League, but that the offer was dismissed.

Brazil’s captain is currently in talks to sign a long-term extension to his current deal at Camp Nou, with a final agreement likely at the start of 2016.

But on Thursday evening, Neymar Sr revealed that rumours which had linked Louis Van Gaal’s team to a move for his son were accurate.

“The offer reached Barcelona and the club contacted us saying they were not going to sell [Neymar],” he told Boa Tarde Fox.

“They asked if we were interested, but that wasn’t the case. Barcelona are not selling, he has three years still to go on his contract.

“It was Manchester’s deal, but that offer is not on the table now, it has fallen through.”
