Barcelona boss tight lipped over Neymar to Man United rumours

first_img1 Barcelona manager Luis Enrique refused to discuss speculation linking Brazilian star Neymar to Manchester United as the Catalan club began their La Liga title defence with a 1-0 victory at Athletic Bilbao.Recent reports have claimed the Red Devils are pursuing a deal for the 23-year-old superstar and are willing to wait and complete the deal next summer if it can’t be finalised before the September 1 deadline.The global superstar is thought to be attracted by United’s history and the Premier League and is reportedly open to making the switch.Louis van Gaal was quiet on the reports when asked following Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Newcastle, and Barca boss Enrique was similarly tight lipped.“It doesn’t interest me to talk about rumours, nor these types of situations,”  he said at his post-match press conference:“I only want to focus on what’s happened to my team.”Lionel Messi missed a first-half penalty but Luis Suarez’s 54th-minute volley gave the Spanish and European champions all three points just six days after their opponents had defeated them 5-1 on aggregate in the Super Cup final.
