Paris St Germain are reportedly ready to smash the world record transfer fee to sign Brazil star Neymar.

The Parisians are ready to offer £85m for the Santos forward, according to reports in France, which would break Cristiano Ronaldo's record £80m move from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009.

Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Real Madrid and AC Milan have been linked with the Brazil international, but Santos said he wouldn't be leaving until after the 2014 World Cup.

But The Metro reports that former PSG star and ex-Brazil international Rai says a deal with the Ligue 1 side is still possible.

"It will be difficult to convince Neymar to move to Paris, because there are lot of clubs after his signature," said Rai.

"But PSG have already signed Thiago Silva, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Lucas Moura. I believe they are all players who were difficult for PSG to convince as well.

"PSG will face stiff competition for his signature, so you cant make any guarantees. I hope that they will manage to sign him, though. It will be very difficult, but it's definitely possible."

Reports suggest Neymar is no longer wedded to the idea of staying in Brazil until 2014, especially after teammate and close friend Ganso was sold to Sao Paulo last week.

French media understand he's now prepared to consider offers, with moneybags PSG prepared to break the bank with a world record £85m offer.

Reports also suggest Neymar, who is currently the seventh-best paid player in the world, would earn a huge pay rise, possibly up to £300,000 a week.

This summer PSG have completed moves for AC Milan pair Silva and Ibrahimovic, and have signed an agreement to bring highly-rated teenager and Neymar's fellow Brazil superstar Lucas Moura to Paris in January.

The Ligue 1 side currently sit third in the table after three straight wins.
