Why Real Madrid want to spend $59m on Neymar

Why Real Madrid will reportedly pay $59m extra to land Neymar this summer

June 9, 2018 By Ali M.
And according to the report, Los Blancos holds no reservation against splashing the extra cash to sign him in time for next season.

An interesting new report has emerged surrounding Real Madrid's Neymar chase. According to the Sun, the Spanish giant will have to forgo an extra $59m if they wish to land the Brazilian superstar this summer.

As written by the British tabloid, they have been informed by a source close to Los Blancos that the 26-year-old has a release clause in his PSG deal which could see him leave Paris for $352m. However, there is a catch to this figure.

This clause will only come into effect on September 1, a day after the transfer window has shut. The reason for this is that the Ligue 1 champion wanted to guarantee the Selecao ace remains at Parc des Princes for at least 18 months.

Florentino Perez's side would thus not be able to sign the attacker until 2019 should they decide to wait for his release clause to kick in. However, the 13-time Champions League winner is eager to lure the player to the Bernabeu in time for the upcoming season and is thus ready to pay $411m – an extra $59m – to acquire his services.

Real Madrid's president reportedly has an obsession with signing the Brazilian, who is currently preparing for the upcoming World Cup. That desire is believed to be one of the main reasons for Zinedine Zidane's exit.

The Frenchman, a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo, knew that the five-time Ballon d'Or winner would likely have to leave to financially accommodate the former Barcelona ace. Matching the Ligue 1 Player of the Year's current wages while keeping the Portuguese icon on the payroll would probably not be plausible.

As for Neymar, several rumors claim the 26-year-old will not force an exit despite wanting that step up. Currently, his focus is on the national side as they go in search of their sixth World Cup trophy. The South American goalscorer made a heroic return in the victory over Croatia and looks ready to lead Tite's squad in Russia.
