Neymar dominates the international break
Brazilian superstar Neymar has been a big name during the international break.
On the pitch, Neymar scored on Friday for Brazil as they beat Japan 3-1 in a friendly held in Lille, France.
Off it, there have been many reports suggesting that Neymar is not happy in Paris after his 222 million euro summer move from Barcelona to PSG.
This has been accentuated by Neymar crying openly in a Brazil press conference.
And, by comments from Sergio Ramos about Neymar’s sister.
Marca’s huge Real Madrid claim about Neymar
If Neymar does leave PSG, it is increasingly likely that Real Madrid will move for the former Barcelona man.
As a result, Marca report on Saturday that Real Madrid have set aside 200 million euros to sign a player next summer.
According to Jose Felix Diaz: “Real Madrid have the money to sign a star player and Neymar is definitely someone they would like to see at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.”
Neymar: An almost unattainable player
Diaz does explain how Neymar could end up costing a lot more than 200 million euros though:
“A possible Neymar deal could end up being around 450m euros between his transfer and salary amount, as Paris Saint-Germain paid 222m in the summer for the forward.
It seems almost impossible that Neymar will leave PSG for a fee lower than the Parisians paid next summer.
Especially as PSG already seem likely to replace coach Unai Emery and striker Edinson Cavani. Both of whom have not got off to a great start with Neymar.
Don’t be surprised if Jose Mourinho or Antonio Conte are joined by Alexis Sanchez at PSG next summer and these Real Madrid rumours are just international break time fillers.
