Real Madrid Set To Battle Barcelona To Sign Neymar


Real Madrid Set To Battle Barcelona To Sign Neymar. Real Madrid could challenge Barcelona for Neymar in one of the biggest transfer battles of the summer , Sky Sports News understands.

Following reports in Spain , it is understood that Real president Florentino Perez is interested in signing Neymar alongside Barcelona , who dream of putting him in new front four with Lionel Messi , Luis Suarez and Antoine Griezmann.

PSG’s sporting director Leonardo has already confirmed that Barcelona have contacted them about signing the Brazil star , but he also said: “We have not seen that Barcelona are truly in a position to buy him. A move of this magnitude is not just a question of emotions. It is a financial question.”


It is claimed PSG officials have a stronger working relationship with Real Madrid than Barcelona , following Neymar’s world-record £200m move to the French capital from Barcelona in 2017.

No formal offers have been made for Neymar at this stage , but one option Barcelona are understood to be suggesting is a deal that includes players going the other way.

The club are understood to want to offload Ousmane Dembele , Philippe Coutinho , Ivan Rakitic and Samuel Umtiti this summer and hope to get substantial fees for them.
