Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain have engaged in talks over the potential transfer of Brazilian attacker Neymar Jr. to Madrid, according to a report from AS. The French club simply don’t want to sell Neymar to Barcelona and even offered the player to Real Madrid, knowing that the attacker just doesn’t want to stay in Paris.

A year-long loan deal could be a possibility, per that same report, although a regular transfer seems more likely given the quality and reputation of the player.

Real Madrid have almost ruled out the signing of Paul Pogba after the transfer window in the Premier League closed without Manchester United securing the arrival of a replacement for the French midfielder. Los Blancos seem ready to sign Van de Beek this summer.

While Neymar is definitely a quality player who would increase Madrid’s chances to compete for all three titles, his fit in the current squad isn’t all that great and it surely seems that he would rather join Barcelona, so these rumors suggesting that the Brazilian star will wear Real Madrid’s jersey by the end of this summer should be taken with a grain of salt.
