Real Madrid published another official statement refuting their interest in Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar, this time being the second in just 10 days.

In the face of the constant reports linking PSG’s Neymar Jr. to our club, Real Madrid C. F. wish to clarify that the club has no intention of making any offer for the player.

The two clubs enjoy an excellent relationship and, as such, if Real Madrid were at any stage to consider securing the services of a PSG player, they would approach the club in the first instance.

It’s extremely shocking to see Real Madrid publishing two different statements refuting offers for the same player in such a short period of time. This is unprecedented in the history of the club and either indicates that Florentino Perez doesn’t want to bother PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi while trying to sign Neymar or that Los Blancos really don’t want to sign Neymar, contrary to what’s being reported almost everywhere.
