At first glance, it might appear that Irish side Limerick FC have pipped Manchester United in the race to pull off the most fanciful transfer swoop of the summer so far.

In adding several new names to their U17 National League squad, Limerick posted a photo on their official website of what the entire watching world immediately took to be Barcelona forward Neymar.

It’s not hard to see why…

The player in the picture is actually none other than 16-year-old striker Barry Cotter – formerly of Avenue United and Ennis Town, not Santos.

Meh, it’s not the best Neymar lookalike we’ve ever seen…
