Neymar Calls For Three Real Madrid Players To Be Axed


Neymar has demanded three players be replaced at Real Madrid before he will consider a move to the Bernabeu according to reports from Spain.

Florentino Perez is expected to finance an overhaul of the squad in the next transfer window and it’s been widely reported that Brazilian star Neymar is the number one target for Real Madrid in the summer.

A report on Spanish website Dario Gol claims that negotiations between Perez and Neymar’s agent are underway with the Paris Saint-Germain forward’s suggestion one of the points of discussion. It’s alleged Neymar feels the club should target three new players and finance the signings by axing goalkeeper Keylor Navas, winger Gareth Bale and striker Karim Benzema.

Dario Gol claims Neymar believes the funds from their sale should be used to sign Chelsea’s Eden Hazard or Mo Salah from Liverpool. It’s also rumoured the Brazilian wants Real to secure the services of Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea or Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois. Finally, Neymar would like to be accompanied by PSG teammate Marquinhos to play in front of the new shot stopper.

Whether or not the Brazilian’s demands will be met it seems Neymar is destined to leave PSG in the summer. The forward has been accused of “spitting” on the French club by former French international Christophe Duggary for not returning to watch his teammates lift the Ligue 1 trophy.

Neymar flew to Brazil for an operation on a fractured metatarsal in February and has not returned to Paris since. The Brazilian stunned the football world when leaving Barcelona in the lurch for a £200m deal last summer. Although the forward has been successful on the pitch the move has not worked out so well off it. With PSG set to offload this summer to meet FFP requirements, it looks increasingly likely that Neymar will depart in the next transfer window.

Real remain on course to win a third consecutive Champions League title following Wednesday’s 2-1 victory against Bayern Munich in the semi final first leg at the Allianz Arena. However, Los Blancos’ form in La Liga has been little short of disastrous with Zinedine Zidane’s men 15 points adrift of Barcelona.

Real star, Cristiano Ronaldo is rumoured to have threatened to leave if the squad is not improved for next season and Zidane’s role as manager is not certain to continue beyond the end of the season if rumours are to be believed.
