Spanish giants Real Madrid still want to sign Neymar from Paris St-Germain this summer, according to reports. 

Madrid have long been linked with the 26-year-old Brazilian and is seen as the ultimate marquee signing to signify the club’s desire to regain the La Liga and Champions League trophies next season.

Whole there have been consistent stories about Neymar’s alleged unhappiness in Paris, PSG seem confident of holding onto him this summer.

Indeed, Spanish daily Marca reports that a deal for Neymar is unlikely and that several other players – including Chelsea’s Eden Hazard – are more likely to join Zinedine Zidane’s side.

However, should Neymar or PSG’s position change then Madrid would be at the head of the queue. It would likely take a new world record to bring Neymar to the Bernabeau – the record is still the £198 million the French side paid Barcelona to bring him to the Parc des Princes – but Madrid could afford it.
