RUMOURS: Man United made world-record Neymar bid

Neymar Snr. reportedly revealed an unnamed club has made an offer of £144.4m for his son but insisted Barcelona's rivals Real Madrid were not the club responsible

Manchester United lead the chase to sign Barcelona star Neymar, according to the Sun.

The Brazilian is currently being probed by a Spanish court over charges of alleged corruption and fraud and Neymar Snr. told the judge on Tuesday that an unnamed club had made a £144.4 million bid for his son.

The Sun claim United are the club most likely to have been behind the bid with club officials reported to have been in talks with Neymar over a summer move, but add that both Manchester City and Chelsea remain interested.

Neymar Snr. reportedly insisted Real Madrid, who have been linked with an audacious move for the 23-year-old, were not behind the world-record offer, prompting talk of a future Premier League move.
