The transfer saga that just runs and runs.
The Brazilian superstar, who starred during the Yellows’ pre-World Cup friendly victory over Croatia at Anfield on Sunday June 3, apparently met with a Los Blancos emissary ahead of the game.
Sources have also revealed that Los Blancos have been in constant contact with the 26-year-old’s people amid speculation he could end his one-season stint with Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
It would, however, take another world-record fee to prise Neymar away from the Parc des Princes – given the Ligue 1 giants shelled out €222 million for his services 12 months ago.
Speculation is ongoing that the Whites will sign the Brazilian icon this summer in a huge transfer but the man in charge of the Spanish top-flight feels Los Blancos are not in a position to virtually double the transfer fee in which Paris Saint-Germain paid to Barcelona last summer.
“Real Madrid aren’t going to pay the €400m needed for Neymar,” 55-year-old Tebas is reported as saying by Marca.
However, he did also state that if any team was to break the glass ceiling with such a deal, it would be the Whites.
“The numbers that they generate can put them close to being able to undertake such a signing,” he added.
