Louis van Gaal wants a new forward, whatever cost.
And for some reason the Dutchman at Old Trafford, always seems to get his will, as if the money bag is inexhaustible for him.
When van Gaal now has decided that he wants Neymar, it's about buying Neymar out of his contract with Barcelona.
According to Globo Esporte, Manchester United has done exactly that.
The club has contacted Barcelona and presented a bid that matches the £140m it will cost to buy the Brazilian out of the contract with the club, and that would be a world record signing.
Now it is up to Neymar whether it is more tempting to play with Memphis Depay and Ashley Young in Manchester United, than with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in Barcelona.
A signing of Neymar also means a solid salary raise for the player. He earns around £155,000 a week in Barcelona, but Neymar have a burning desire for a salary that is about twice as big.
It is one sick sport, money-wise.
