The Paris Saint-Germain winger’s unrest at the French club is an open secret and a proposed return to La Liga is still on the cards. But he could be heading to the capital club, should PSG respond positively to Madrid’s opening bid.
Goal report that Florentino Perez is still a fan of the Brazilian and is willing to enter negotiations with an opening bid in excess of €100 million. There is a possibility that Ballon d’Or holder Luka Modric could be added in the deal.
Barcelona’s failure to sort out their wage structure by loaning out Philippe Coutinho has virtually eliminated them as possible suitors for Neymar. The Catalan side worked hard to get their record signing off their payroll in order to accommodate Neymar but are now reportedly behind their rivals in the race for the winger.
However, Madrid could also face complications in acquiring the player. To start with, it is unlikely that PSG will be willing to sell the player for less than €222 million, based on their response when Barcelona came knocking.
Also, it would take some convincing to buy the player who has his mind set on returning to Barcelona.
