I don't believe Neymar's costly - Mourinho guards world-record transfer
Manchester United administrator Jose Mourinho says the world-record €222million charge Paris Saint-Germain are ready to pay to sign Neymar is "not costly".
Neymar is on the very edge of a mind blowing takeoff from Barcelona in an exchange that will smash the past record set by United a year ago when they took Paul Pogba back to Old Trafford by paying Juventus €105m (£89.3m).
The 25-year-old Brazilian's up and coming move needs to prompted inquiries in the matter of how PSG can bear the cost of such a huge expense without breaking UEFA's Financial Fair Play directions.
Yet, Mourinho has no issue with the sum the Ligue 1 club are spending on Neymar.
"When we marked Paul Pogba, I said he was not costly," Mourinho said after United's 2-1 benevolent prevail upon Sampdoria on Wednesday.
"Costly are the ones that get to a specific level without a specific quality. I don't think £200m for Neymar is costly."
