Man Utd want Neymar

Football Transfer Centre

Man Utd are reportedly chasing the youngster touted as 'the new Robinho', Neymar da Silva. The 15-year-old is currently playing at Santos and a number of European giants are ready to make an offer for the youngster.

The 15-year-old has already trained with the Santos first team and is being heralded as the 'new Robinho' - as he is very similar in stature and technique and also hails from the same club as the Brazilian international.

Real Madrid are leading the chase to land Neymar as they have already reached a pre-contract agreement with his agent Wagner Ribeiro, who is also Robinho's representative.

The Spanish champions signed a deal in August that runs until June 2011 - but the issue is that they have only signed with the player's representative and nothing has been agreed with Santos.

Now United's South American scouts have latched onto Neymar and have made enquires with the Brazilian gaints.
