Manchester United are reportedly ready to trigger FC Barcelona’s Neymar’s £140m release clause this month.

The 13-time Premier League champions, who defeated Swansea City 2-1 at the weekend, have been linked with a move for the Brazil international since the summer transfer window.

The 23-year-old, who has 69 international caps for the 2014 World Cup hosts, has scored 16 goals in 21 appearances in all competitions.

Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal is understood to want to sign a marquee player during this month’s window, with Neymar his number one target after talks over a new contract at the Nou Camp reportedly stalled.
