Neymar will be Real Madrid’s main target next summer, has another €222 million release clause -report

It’s hard to foresee Madrid triggering that kind of clause, though.

El Chiringuito de Jugones is all in on the Neymar to Real Madrid transfer saga. The Spanish TV show reported last night that Neymar has become the club’s main target for next summer’s transfer window and added that the Brazilian star included yet another €222 million release clause on his new deal with PSG, equaling the one he had in his contract with Barcelona which ended up facilitating his move to the French league.

Apparently, and according to that same report by Josep Pedrerol, Neymar wants to sign for Real Madrid and the club perceived his move to PSG as something which would allow him to join Madrid in the near future.

However, and even if this report is true, would Real Madrid spend that kind of money on Neymar? While it’s clear that Los Blancos might definitely have the budget to pull that off after a very quiet summer of 2017, how big of a contract would Neymar want?

Take this with a huge grain of salt as right now Neymar’s move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2018 seems too expensive to be true.
