Could Brazilian superstar Neymar end up at the Santiago Bernabeu next season? Rumours in Spain suggest that this is a very real possibility. Apparently, the player himself wants to leave PSG already and has instructed his father to work on getting him a move to Madrid.
Links to Neymar first surfaced last month and it seems like this is a rumour that will not be going away any time soon. Since he went to France, there has been no lack of controversy. He fell out with Edinson Cavani over who should take penalties for the club and reports suggest he is unhappy with life in France.
There were even some rumours recently that he had asked his former Barcelona teammates if the Catalan club would take him back, though he had to deny this in a press conference. Just this week, he missed PSG’s game against Strasbourg in order to return to Brazil and there are question marks on his commitment to the club.
Summer Move Possible?
Neymar’s father Neymar Senior acts as his son’s agent and was a huge part of the deal that took the player from Barcelona to Paris last summer, even though he said that he was not happy with the move himself.
Spanish television show El Chiringuito has suggested that Neymar would like to move to Real Madrid next summer and has told his father to organise the transfer.
Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has already welcomed rumours linking Neymar with a move to Los Blancos, while president Florentino Perez spoke of his admiration for the player last week.
‘Everyone knew that I wanted to sign him,’
‘Being at Madrid would make it easier for Neymar to win [the Ballon d’Or]. Madrid is a club that gives big players what they need.’
There is no doubt that it will be an interesting summer for the club.
