United paid €105 million (R1.44bn) to bring the Frenchman back to the Old Trafford and Mourinho seems prepared to splash the cash again after the season.

According to Sport, the English giants are keen to attempt another bid to lure Neymar away from the Camp Nou after the Red Devils allegedly already tried to sign the Brazilian ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

The 25-year-old only recently signed a new contract, which includes a €180 million (R2.5bn) buyout clause that will reportedly rise to €200 million (R2.8bn) by the end of the season.
