The Brazilian global says that although the Red Devils did not approach him directly, he was aware of their interest towards the end of the summer, according to Sport.
“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.
‘I heard that there were offers, but none made it to me’.
But Neymar’s comments may indicate that United are continuing to track the Barcelona star, with a view to a further opporunity to join the Old Trafford club in forthcoming transfer windows.
Some observers rubbished the speculation linking the Barcelona forward to the club, but the player himself admitted early talks were held.
Neymar is now set to begin talks over a new contract with Barca due to a clause inserted into his contract which states that it can be renegotiated in the third season.
Neymar had strenuously denied that he had even thought about a move away from the Catalan club when speaking to the press in the summer, telling the media outlet TV3 barely a month ago: “Barca fans have nothing to worry about”. I hope I will be on the Ballon d’Or podium this year’.
