Real Madrid identifies due date for Neymar deal

Transfer: Real Madrid identifies target date for Neymar deal

January 13, 2018 By Ali M.
Los Blancos believes signing the PSG ace is possible, but the Brazilian will cost tons of money.

Despite having only left Barcelona last summer, Neymar is constantly being linked with a move to his former club’s rival, Real Madrid. Los Blancos’ interest in the Brazilian is simple: he is a world-class player who could rejuvenate this underperforming squad.

The Spanish Primera Division holder hasn’t signed a Galactico, a mega-money signing, since James Rodriguez in 2014. With Mbappe having gone to PSG, the list of candidates is short. 

Harry Kane, Eden Hazard, Timo Werner, and Mauro Icardi are names being linked with the club; but the Real Madrid hierarchy believes Neymar is the perfect player. The Bernabeu side estimates that the entire cost to sign the Selecao star will be $488m.

According to Marca, Real Madrid will not pursue the player without PSG’s knowledge and the Ligue 1 outfit does not plan to sell Neymar. However, the report adds that Real Madrid has a player PSG has long desired in the form of Cristiano Ronaldo, hinting at a possible player-plus-cash bid.

Los Blancos believes that this difficult deal could be pulled off in the summer of 2019 due to a number of reasons. As stated in the article, Neymar wishes to play at the Bernabeu where his Ballon d’Or hunt will be boosted.

The 25-year-old was also seen next to an ambassador to Real Madrid during his vacation in another positive sign for the 12-time Champions League winners. Nonetheless, due to the complexity of this deal, Real Madrid is most likely to wait and avoid pursuing him in the current January transfer window.

Zidane’s side, 16 points behind leaders Barcelona, has struggled with form this season. Their next opponent in La Liga is Villarreal, with the Yellow Submarine making the trip to the Bernabeu on Saturday.
