PSG have taken 2 drastic steps to convince Neymar to stay - and ignore Real Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo's incredible move to Juventus has left a very obvious and gaping hole at Real Madrid.

Losing their superstar after a frankly ridiculous 450 goals in nine years means there's quite a lot that needs replacing and you can fully expect a big name to arrive in Madrid this summer.

Harry Kane, Eden Hazard, and Kylian Mbappe have all been linked but no matter how strong the interest is, we all know who target #1 is.

Talk of Neymar to Real Madrid has been ongoing since almost the moment he signed for Paris Saint-Germain.

And it's not like the talk has just been from the media, either - Real players and staff have been pretty open about wanting the Brazilian at the Bernabeu.

Now that there is a clear spot at Real for the player, you can expect Florentino Perez and co. to do everything in their power to get Neymar - no matter the cost to them.

But that doesn't mean that PSG can't do the same to keep him and they're already making moves to convince the player to stay.

According to Spanish outlet Sport, PSG are ready to offer Neymar a massive pay rise on the deal he signed just a year ago.

That's quite a staggering plan considering he's already on €37m a year but they intend to get him closer to the €50m that Lionel Messi makes at Barcelona.


And PSG also recognise that money isn't everything to Neymar, apparently, as they've made a move of a different kind, again according to Sport.

Bruno Mazziotti, physio for the Brazilian National Team and Corinthians, is on his way to PSG permanently.

The physio was an integral part of Neymar's rehabilitation process after he was injured last season and the move is seen as a way of making him more comfortable in Paris.

So that's what PSG are offering right now, although it would hardly be surprising to learn that they have more in their locker.

The battle over Neymar could be set to dominate a second summer in a row as Real look to do what they can to replace Ronaldo - but PSG aren't going to let him go lightly.
