Real Madrid will attempt to hijack Barcelona’s move for Neymar by offering Paris Saint-Germain €130m plus a player.
The Brazilian superstar, 27, has become unsettled in Paris and has been linked with a sensational summer return to the La Liga champions.
But Mundo Deportivo claims that Los Blancos want the PSG ace to become their latest ‘Galáctico’ to arrive at the club.
Madrid will offer €130m along with Gareth Bale as part of their offer to sign Neymar from the French champions.
Bale, 29, has no place in Zinedine Zidane’s plans as Madrid have spent heavily this summer to overhaul their squad.
Madrid snapped up Eden Hazard from Chelsea and Neymar’s arrival would limit the Welsh winger’s opportunities even further at the Santiago Bernabéu.
And the Spanish newspaper added that Los Blancos would reportedly offer him an annual salary worth up to €30m per year, which would earn him around €580,000 per week.
PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi recently fired out a warning to Neymar and his teammates that the club would clamp down on “celebrity behaviour.”
The 45-year-old Qatari businessman told France Football: “Players will have to assume their responsibilities even more than before.
“It must be completely different. They will have to do more, work more.
“They are not there to please themselves. And if they do not agree, the doors are open. Ciao!
“I do not want to have any celebrity behaviour anymore.”
And Al-Khelaifi made his feelings perfectly clear about Neymar when he said that nobody forced him to leave Barcelona for PSG.
“Nobody forced him to sign. Nobody forced him to. He came with a fully understanding of the cause to sign up to a project,” he explained.
But it looks like Neymar is happy to make the switch back after it emerged that he has been property hunting in Spain.
Should Barcelona re-sign Neymar from PSG?
