Mourinho: Barca won't sell Neymar

José Mourinho has ruled out a summer move for Neymar, branding the idea that Manchester United could prise the Brazilian forward away from Barcelona as "absurd".

While claiming many major honours during his time with Barca, Neymar admits that the club's recent 6-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in a remarkable Champions League contest has to rank as one of his career highlights.

Mourinho's comments ultimately pour water on the fire of what would be a ground-breaking deal, with the United boss claiming Barca can not afford to lose the 25-year-old.

10 signed an improved contract with the Blaugrana in October.

Craig Burley and Mark Donaldson try to make sense of emerging rumours linking Neymar to Manchester United.

The 25-year-old joined Barcelona from Santos for a fee believed to be around €57m in 2013, but Neymar and those involved will now face corruption charges with the real cost said to be closer to the €100m-mark. "I think it is impossible". Although Messi is still a young player with years ahead of him, he's nearly 30, and Neymar will be the great player of Barcelona post-Messi.

Ronald Torreyes , who is replacing the injured Didi Gregorius, grounded out to second base after Judge to score Chase Headley . While striking out 17 batters to just two walks is impressive, also keep in mind batters only hit.157/.181/.371 in 70 at-bats.

I never thought I'd sue the boy I loved so much, but Neymar, his father and his mother betrayed me, they've committed a crime with the help of Barcelona and they've committed fraud.

He told reporters: 'The Premier League is a championship that amazes me. We qualify and who doesn't goes straight to the playoffs, where there is a brutal difference between the teams.

"And then you have high-level coaches like Mourinho and (City's Pep) Guardiola".

"Obviously it would be exciting, any coach wants to work with the best clubs and with the best".

Chelsea are also said to be interested in both forwards, with manager Antonio Conte willing to match Mourinho's offer.
