Barcelona star Neymar is considering a future transfer to Manchester United, according to reports in the Metro.
La Liga expert Guillem Balague believes the superstar ‘has to decide if he stays and waits for Messi to move on, or goes to team that will build around him.’
The Brazilian mega star had been linked with a move during the summer, but later poured cold water over the prospect of an Old Trafford switch.
The 23-year old forward is currently part of perhaps the most feared front three in world football, along with teammates Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez at the Camp Nou.
Balague predicted the link will ‘be the saga of the next 12 months or more.’
With Anthony Martial and Memphis Depay impressing during the early stages of their Red Devils career, the arrival of the Selecao captain could provide the legacy of young players manager Louis Van Gaal is famous for leaving.
He gave the likes of Xavi and Iniesta their debuts while at Barcelona, as well as Toni Kroos and Thomas Mueller while in charge of German giants Bayern Munich.
United currently sit top of the Premier League, following their 3-0 over Sunderland after cross-town rivals Manchester City earlier slipped up in a 4-1 loss to Tottenham.
