United track Neymar as Giggs replacement

Santos star Neymar could be subject to a bid from Manchester United this summer, according to caughtoffside.com.

The Brazilian earned rave reviews for his match-winning performance against Scotland last weekend and Europe's elite are now swarming around the winger looking to lure him from his homeland.

And Sir Alex Ferguson is now ready to join the race for Neymar, with Chelsea and Barcelona also interested.

Reports suggest that Neymar may be brought to Old Trafford to eventually replace Ryan Giggs in the United team, but with a valuation of £30 million, Ferguson may have to look elsewhere to replace his Welsh winger.

However, just like Chelsea, who have three Brazilian's in their ranks in Ramires, Alex and David Luiz, United's samba contingent of Rafael, Fabio and Anderson may help tempt Neymar to Manchester.

The Old Trafford club are tipped to spend big in the coming transfer window with Ashley Young, Javier Pastore and Daniele De Rossi all linked with the club.

Neymar meanwhile is attracting attention from all over Europe, and Ferguson will have to move quickly he wants to land the man touted as the 'new Pele'.
