Real Madrid is reportedly considering a massive money move for Paris Saint Germain’s new signed superstar and former Barcelona star Neymar.
Los Blancos are more than willing to pay to get their next possible Galactico and it looks like their target would be one hell of a signing. With a massive war-chest and the will to pay more than 200 million euros for a signing, the Santiago Bernabeu side has put Neymar da Silva at the top of their shortlist, alongside Lyon’s Nabil Fekir.
However, given how expensive the Brazilian is, according to Marca any potential deal for Neymar could go way past €400 million. This is all inclusive of both the potential transfer fees and of course the 25-year old’s potential salary. But that entire fee would eventually be worth it, given how well he has adapted to the Ligue 1.
In just twelve games since his astronomical money move to PSG, Neymar has gone on to score eleven goals and record a further 9 assists. However, it’s his Ligue 1 performances that have surprised people, with the Brazilian scoring seven goals and producing a further six for his teammates.
What could actually make the move possible in the end, are reports that Neymar is unhappy at PSG, but the Brazilian has refuted any claims as such. In an interview, the Brazilian said “I had a great welcome [in Paris]. Everyone treated me with care and respect. Any move to a new place of work has difficulties, it takes a while, but it also depends on people at the club to make adaptation quicker.

That’s what happened to me, I adapted quickly. I don’t like made up stories. My trouble is with part of the press. It is not against everyone. It is against those that think they know it all, but they don’t. I have no issue with Cavani, no issue with the coach. On the contrary, I came to PSG with his support.”
Meanwhile, Nabil Fekir is also on Real Madrid radar after his sensational start to the season, scoring 11 goals in 11 games for Lyon in the Ligue 1. The French international has been in fine form and while he is a strong finisher, Fekir is also very versatile. The 24 year old has been compared to Zinedine Zidane on many occasions by both critics and fans and it would be interesting to see what the Real Madrid manager has to say.
Both Real Madrid and Cristiano Ronaldo have to face reality, their Portuguese superstar is not getting any younger. Los Blancos need a like-for-like replacement and Marco Asensio still needs to develop his immense potential. But till then, for the time being, Neymar would be a brilliant signing, as the Brazilian has both the skill, quality and even experience to replace the four-time Ballon d’Or winner.
