Manchester United are lining up a stunning double raid for two Brazil stars, while Arsenal are battling Liverpool for a full-back target, according to Wednesday’s European papers.



Manchester United have huge plans for the coming summer as they are ready to sanction a £315million double raid, reports claim.

Despite comments from inside the PSG camp that star winger Neymar is going nowhere, United are apparently still keen on trying their luck with a huge summer move.

According to Spanish outlet Don Balon, the Red Devils will try their luck by preparing a huge package to temp the Parisians to sell in a deal which could cost £215million.

The Brazilian left Barcelona for the French capital in August 2017 for a world-record transfer fee of £200million, and has constantly been linked with an exit.

Recently, Italian transfer site Calciomercato (via UOL Esporte) stated that Neymar has chosen to remain at PSG next season, hinting that he has ‘unfinished business’.

Despite this, the report from Don Balon claims that United will try and tempt Neymar to uproot once again by pairing him with his Brazil international team-mate Philippe Coutinho.

Rumours in the Independent on Wednesday added fuel to the fire that Coutinho could move to Old Trafford, while the Daily Mirror suggested a £100m fee could be enough to see the former Liverpool star in a United shirt.
