Neymar to Real Madrid: Los Blancos to offer €130 million (£115m) plus either Gareth Bale or James Rodriguez to Paris Saint-Germain for Neymar according to reports.
Neymar reportedly wants out of Paris Saint Germain. It is understood that the Brazilian wants to go back to Barcelona, a place he calls home, and regrets ever leaving them. The Catalonian club are also willing to have him back in their side.
However, PSG’s evaluation of €300 million means that Barcelona cannot outright buy him back. Barcelona are planning a player + cash deal for the superstar. But they are not the only ones in the race for Neymar’s signature.
Real Madrid are also in the hunt for Neymar. They have reportedly offered €130 million and either one of Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez as part of their deal. Madrid have also told Neymar that they are willing to go close to matching the €865,000-a-week (£775,477) salary he currently receives at PSG.

Florentino wants Neymar!
According to Mundo Deportivo, Zinedine Zidane is in favor of reinforcing the midfield with Paul Pogba. Real president Florentino however is intent at signing the Brazilian. He believes that Neymar’s signing would not only be a sporting victory but a marketing one as well.
Florentino believes that he needs a player with enough marketability to fill the Bernabéu on his own. In his opinion, outside of Messi and Christiano Ronaldo, only Neymar fits that profile. It is for this reason that Real have acted fast and quickly placed an offer for the world’s most expensive footballer.
Florentino had attempted to buy Neymar back in 2013 but failed as Barcelona swooped the young Brazilian back then. He will hope to extract revenge on the Blaugrana by doing exactly the same to them.
