Neymar has reportedly agreed to snub ​Real Madrid for ​Barcelona as the Catalan giants look to lure him away from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer. Neymar became the world’s most expensive player when he left Barcelona for PSG in 2017 for €222m (£200m), and Barca have been trying to re-sign the Brazilian since last summer.


The former Santos forward had a trial at Real Madrid in 2005. when Robinho signed for Los Blancos, but opted to join Barcelona instead in 2013 and moved to current club PSG in 2017.

Barcelona and Real are desperate to improve their squads and will no doubt return to tempt the 28-year-old back to ​LaLiga when the transfer window reopens.



Last summer, the Brazilian attacker looked set to leave the Parc des Princes, with both of Spain's big two clubs interested in his signing, but ended up staying in Paris. According to Spanish outlet ​Ok Diario, however, Barcelona have been able to put the kibosh on any hope Real had of enticing the former Santos man to the Bernabeu.


PSG are not going to want one of their star players leave for anything less than £150m. The LaLiga leaders are hampered by Financial Fair Play restrictions, and will probably have to sell in order to make it fiscally possible to land Neymar.


Barcelona have also been linked with ​Inter's Lautaro Martinez as a potential replacement for Luis Suarez, but the ​Serie A outfit won't be letting their star player leave cheaply either.
