Jose Mourinho Comments On Neymar's Price Tag

By Keegan Kruger - Aug 03, 2017 09:59 AM @KeeganKruger

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has had his say on Neymar's proposed world record fee and what it could mean for the transfer market going forward.

Reports: Barca Eye French Star As No. 1 Replacement For Neymar

It was confirmed by FC Barcelona on Wednesday that the Brazilian superstar was on the verge of a €222 million (R3.4 billion) move to Paris Saint-Germain.

After the Red Devils' friendly against Sampdoria on Wednesday night, Mourinho was quick to say that Neymar's fee is not as crazy as many may think.

"When we paid that amount for Paul, I (said) that he was not expensive," the Portuguese tactician said, according to ESPN.

"Expensive are the ones that get to a certain level of a certain quality, I think Neymar is going to happen the same, I don't think he's expensive.

"I think he's expensive now because you are going to have more players of £100 million and £80 million and £60 million, and I think that's the problem because Neymar is one of the best players in the world.

"Commercially, he's very strong and PSG thought about it, so I don't think the problem is Neymar, it's the consequences."

Official: Neymar Hands In Transfer Request

Mourinho's men will next be in action on 8 August, when they take on Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup.

Spot on Mou, Neymar is not expensive but now his multi million move will see clubs starting to overprice their players in the process. It'll be madness from the upcoming transfer window
