Neymar is reportedly set to be available for €170 million in the summer of 2020, amid interest from Real Madrid over a big money move.
According to a report by Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, Neymar is unhappy with life at PSG, who are also starting to run out of patience with the Brazilian superstar and his antics. Real Madrid are interested in signing the former Barcelona forward, who would be available for €170 million in the summer of 2020.
Neymar has already enjoyed one of the modern-day great careers, having won every single major honour there is to win at club level. Having been a part of several illustrious campaigns with Barcelona, he created quite a stir in the summer of 2017 when he switched allegiances to PSG in a world record €222 million transfer.
At Parc des Princes, Neymar has been a prolific customer, with fantastic returns of 49 goals and 28 assists in 56 appearances. But, injuries have played spoilsport for the Brazilian superstar, who has spent a major chunk of the last two years on the sidelines due to a couple of long-term foot injuries.
To make matters worse, constant reports linking the 27-year-old with a move away from the French capital have only added to the uncertainties surrounding him at PSG. Real Madrid, who last summer, categorically denied any interest in Neymar, are reportedly keen on signing him.
Attack has been one of the problem points for Los Blancos this season, with Karim Benzema often waging a lone battle in the final third. Indeed, the failure to replace Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals has been a major factor in their downfall this season, something that they have been looking to address by targeting both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, as per widespread reports.
But, Mundo Deportivo suggest that Neymar is now the sole focus for Real Madrid, although PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is unwilling to let his star asset leave, for any price, despite the possibility of an unrest in the wake of his controversial altercation with a fan following the French Cup final loss.
The report though, adds that a release clause will come into effect in the summer of 2020, which Real Madrid, or any other suitor, could take advantage of. This clause is worth €170 million, which would represent a great deal in the current environments of the transfer market.
However, a move this summer seems to be unlikely for any club chasing after Neymar, with PSG chief Al-Khelaifi hell-bent on keeping hold of the player.
