The Associated Press reached Neymar’s agent, who promised to comment later.
The Brazil worldwide skied his effort over the bar from 12 yards in Saturday’s La Liga encounter after Lionel Messi had already failed from the spot on two occasions earlier this campaign.
Since the deal fell through the cracks, there is new talks between the 23-year-old attacker and his current club Barcelona.
“There were some conversations, but nothing concrete came of it. There were a lot of rumors, but I didn’t receive any offers”, he said.
Neymar is expected to open contract talks with Barca over doubling his salary to over £200,000-a-week – making him the club’s second-highest paid player.
The fact the Brazil global was in contact with the Red Devils is worrisome for the Blaugrana, even if it doesn’t have to be the end of the world.
However, ‘s parents said the decision was based on an “incorrect understanding” of their son’s income.
In June, Spain’s National Court admitted a lawsuit alleging “corruption and swindling” by Neymar, his father and Santos. I don’t know if we can make as many goals but we are going to try to.
The former Santos player is accused of not paying the correct taxes between 2011 and 2013 for amounts that account to £10.5m. Reports confirm that Neymar wants his weekly salary increased to £200,000.
That leaves the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich, along with a couple of Premier League clubs.
And according to Balague, while Neymar was never likely to leave Barcelona this summer, he could well do in the future.
