Real Madrid are hunting for yet another big fish to fill in for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The efforts to get an iconic replacement for Ronaldo, who has moved to Serie A club Juventus in a €100 million deal, are entering a crucial phase.
The deal, if finalised, will potentially create the record for the biggest transfer contract in the football history. For, the player for Real Madrid will neither come easy nor cheaper.
Yes. Real Madrid are reportedly eyeing Brazilian icon Neymar Jr as a replacement for Ronaldo. The Spanish LaLiga club has reportedly sent its emissary to start negotiations with Neymar’s father.
Brazil’s Globesporte has reported that the head of the international football department at Real Madrid, Juni Calafat has established the first contact with Neymar’s father to convince the player for joining the club next season.
Convincing the player is not the only goal to get the Brazilian football icon to Real Madrid.
Neyman has a contract with Paris Saint-Germain till 2022. PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi will not allow his star to exit easily.
Madrid are aware that it will be a tough negotiation but also have trust that the player can exert the necessary pressure to open the doors.
PSG has spent more than €200 million euros for the former Barcelona player just a year ago. The French club are unlikely to see any value in selling him so quickly, unless it is the footballer who forces his departure.
