Real Madrid are keeping abreast of Neymar’s situation at Paris Saint-Germain and, despite any deal for the Brazilian being difficult, remain keen on the prospect of taking him to the Bernabeu.
The 27-year-old’s future in Paris is very much up in the air, with Neymar having been tipped to depart in the summer and Barcelona having been heavily linked.
Indeed, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi had a strong message for the Ligue 1 side’s star players, insisting that he will not accept “celebrity behaviour” and that he only wants players who are “willing to give everything”.
He also insisted that nobody forced the Brazil international, who is currently sidelined with an ankle injury and has thus missed out on the Copa America, to sign for PSG in the first place.
There has also been a shake-up behind the scenes at the club that could affect Neymar’s future, with sporting director Antero Henrique, who had been a big supporter of the forward, departing and being replaced by Leonardo.
According to sources close to the Ligue 1 champions, the Brazilian doesn’t hold Neymar in as high regard as Henrique, with Al-Khelaifi insisting Leonardo will have “all the sporting powers” to make decisions regarding players at the club.
