PSG place 400 million euro price-tag on Neymar

Neymar Jr. is still on Real Madrid's radar with the Spanish club now aware of the outlay they will need to pay in order to secure the Brazilian striker's services.

PSG club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has repeated on a number of occasions that the player is not for sale but it has emerged that for a fee of 400 million the Ligue 1 side would be prepared to let the striker return to LaLiga. A few weeks ago delegates from Real Madrid met with Neymar's father and two attorneys to explore a possible move to the Bernabeu and it emerged that 400 million euro was the quantity that would convince the French outfit to part with their Brazilian striker

LaLiga return

Madrid are aware of Neymar's desire to return to the Spanish league and a comment from club president Florentino Pérez last December made no secrets in his interest in the striker as he claimed on the El Larguero radio programme that: “Neymar would stand a better chance to win the Ballon d'Or playing with Real Madrid as Madrid is a club that gives back what every great player needs”.

It was apparent to see a positive on-field relationship between Neymar and both Cristiano and Sergio Ramos during the first leg of the Champions League last 16 game at the Bernabeu. Since the acquisition of Gareth Bale in 2013 the LaLiga club have not signed a player of "Galáctico" proportions and the club have identified Neymar as the key player to lead the front line in a post-Cristiano Ronaldo era at the Santiago Bernabeu.
