If The Sun wasn't enough, now the Brazilian media has jumped into the Neymar to Manchester Bandwagon.

According to major outlet Globo Esporte, the Red Devils offered €190 million to Barcelona for the transfer of the Brazilian superstar, which would make it the highest fee ever paid for a single player in football history. That is the amount of the buyout clause on Neymar's contract, which ends on July of 2018.

The report goes on to say that, while Barça refused the offer because of the transfer ban, they are open to negotiations for next summer. Always according to the report, the Blaugrana are attracted by the proposal and will use the money to find better players on other positions. As if Barça wasn't the second most valuable club on the planet, but that's ok.

Brazilian media also suggests that Neymar is also on board with the offer, and that he sees a move to the Premier League as a good challenge for his career. As if going for a Treble every year wasn't a challenge, but that's ok.

I love the Brazilian media!
