Paris Saint-Germain striker Neymar Jr. would be free to leave the French club if they receive a €300 million offer for him before September 1st, according to Spanish newspaper El País. Real Madrid are reportedly interested in the Brazilian star but it seems highly unlikely that they will spend that much on a single player, no matter how good he is.

Furthermore, per that same report, Neymar would ask a €50 million/year contract to leave PSG, something which would make his potential move to the Spanish capital even more impossible.

All things considered, rumors suggesting that Real Madrid will make a deal for Neymar just a year after PSG completed a €222 million move for him seem to be just noise ahead of the matchup between these two teams in the Champions League. Neymar might as well want to leave the French side, but PSG will simply not sell their man star that easily.
