Madrid deny making €310 offer to PSG for Neymar
- Updated: July 3, 2018
Neymar played his role well for Brazil as they eliminated Mexico from the round of 16 stage of the Russia 2018 World Cup on Monday. However. on the same day, Real Madrid denied a report that they had launched a €310 million bid for the Brazil international.
It’s no secret that Madrid president Florentino Perez has been a long-term admirer of Neymar, and intends to bring him to the Santiago Bernabeu if possible. It can be recalled that the Los Blancos missed out on the opportunity to sign the player back when he was at Santos.
Regardless, a story was making the rounds on TVE on Monday evening that the Bernabeu outfit had made a €310m offer to Paris Saint-Germain for Neymar, and Madrid were quick to deny such a development.
The club officially declared the story been publicised by TVE as false, stating that they had not made any offer to PSG for Neymar. The club also expressed disappointment that a Spanish public television peddled false information without contacting any of the supposedly involved parties to determine if there was any validity in the report.
Meanwhile, the report from TVE further suggested that the offer which was supposedly made to Neymar was for a seven-year duration alongside a salary of €45 million yearly.
Although the club have denied making such an offer, many won’t be surprised to see Real Madrid declare any interest in Neymar especially with the reported uncertainty surrounding Ronaldo’s situation at the club. We wait to see how future developments on Real Madrid’s purported interest in Neymar pans out.
