It has been just seven months since Neymar made the most sensational move in football history.

The Brazilian was one of the biggest names at Barcelona, but, reports surfaced last summer that he was convinced he had to leave the club in order to challenge Lionel Messi for the Ballon d’Or.

Many assumed that Neymar would stay put considering he was already at one of the, if not the biggest clubs in the world, but, that was not the case.

Barcelona insisted that they would not sell their star man, but they were left hapless as Paris Saint-Germain activated his €222million release clause.

Neymar seemed more than happy to move, and he has been in electric form in France, having netted an impressive 28 times in 30 games.


The Brazilian was initially more than happy to swap Spain for France, but there have been rumours that Neymar believes the transfer was a mistake.

With the 26-year-old unsettled at his new club, it has been reported that both Barcelona and Real Madrid have been interested in taking him back to Spain.

However, it seems at the moment that a move to Real Madrid is more likely than a return to his former club.

According to Sport, Neymar has told his father that he wants a move to Real Madrid, and has given him license to speak to Los Blancos.

Neymar views winning the World Cup with Brazil as his main priority, and that goal has increased in importance after his country’s humiliation at the 2014 edition.


The former Barcelona player wants to remain fully focused on achieving that goal, and does not want any uncertainty about his future to be a distraction.

The Brazilian is therefore hopeful that his father can get a deal sorted before the Russia World Cup starts in June.

The footballing world could be just a few months away from yet another sensational transfer involving Neymar.


Given that Neymar has not even entered his prime yet and is still one of the best players in world football, he of course will not come cheap.

PSG signed him from Barcelona for €222million just last year, and it seems as if Real Madrid will have to activate his release clause of €400million to take him from the French capital.

But with Real Madrid needing a Galactico to replace the ageing Cristiano Ronaldo, plus the fact that they have fallen well behind Barcelona in the race for La Liga this season, Zinedine Zidane making a summer move to Los Blancos is certainly not beyond the realms of possibility.
