Real Madrid will pay Neymar's €190 million release clause if their appeal to FIFA goes through, according to MARCA. The Brazilian has yet to sign a contract extension with Barcelona and he is asking for a big contract if the latest reports are accurate. Madrid would be willing to meet those demands and knowing that Barcelona will never sell the player, Florentino Pérez wants to pay the clause and sign him anyway.

Signing Neymar would be a huge boost for the fans given that he is one of Barcelona's most promising player for the future. It's quite clear that Real would probably need to sell Cristiano Ronaldo to afford this move, but the Portuguese captain has been rumored to be on his way out all season long.

Either way, this doesn't seem like a likely move. Could Real Madrid spend that much money on a single player? Could Neymar leave Barcelona for Real Madrid?
