Real Madrid have reportedly put PSG star Neymar at the top of their summer transfer wish list, with a fee of £357m said to be enough to secure the Brazilian’s signature.

Reported by Spanish newspaper Marca , Madrid are set to break the bank once again and bring in yet another Galatico, and this time it will be somewhat of a controversial transfer.

Having already played for bitter rivals Barcelona, a move to the Bernabeu could not be the best idea for Neymar – if history is anything to go by.

It is unlikely that a pig’s head will be thrown at the Brazilian, but there would be some unrest and hatred toward Neymar from the fans of the Catalan giants.

The 25-year-old moved to France last summer for £198m, and even though PSG have an abundance of cash at their disposal, if they were to sell Neymar for the reported £357m they would stand to make an amazing amount of profit – which could then be used for a possible replacement such as Eden Hazard.


As for Real, they are struggling in the league at the moment. They currently sit in fourth position, 16 points behind Barcelona.

A tricky test in the Champions League awaits them in the shape of PSG, in what could be an audition for Neymar against his next potential employers.
