Sir Alex Ferguson has had a Brazilian forward for Manchester United on his radar for some time now.
Lucas Moura was meant to be the one and many extrapolated that the Robin Van Persie move was to compensate for the fact that Moura chose Paris Saint-Germain over United.
Gareth Southgate has raised the spectre of Wayne Rooney past his ‘best before’ date in the British Press and Sir Alex seems hungry for not only Premier League dominance again, but for Champions league success as well.
This is why one gets the feeling he is not done with looking for a Brazilian forward just yet.
Brazil has some delectable talent on offer, but not for long.
Chelsea have Oscar. The Sun has exclusively reported that Chelsea are plotting a £45million swoop for Colombian superstar Radamel Falcao in January.
Spurs are said to be ready, willing and able to get Ganso.
So who is left for United? Neymar.
Until recently always a Chelsea target Neymar has shown reluctance to leave Brazil before the World Cup, but with Oscar already in England, Sir Alex may just be able to persuade him.
With Falcao at Chelsea, Neymar would be a free target.
Is that one striker too many for United? Not with Wayne Rooney dropping in to a deeper midfield creative role.
Given just how tough the competition is this year in the Premier and Champions League, Neymar may be just the extra edge United need.
