Massive news has broken out with the rumours of Barcelona rivals Real Madrid trying to eye their key player, Neymar Jr. The news is shocking as the two teams happen to be arch rivals and if the move takes place (looks nearly impossible) it could become a record transfer in the world of football. Wealthy club Real Madrid to rumoured to put up a sensational bid for the Brazilian who is on a goal galore for the Spanish giants, FC Barcelona. However this is not the first time that Los Blancos have tried to attract the 23 year old striker. 2 years ago, Madrid had approached Neymar with an offer but sadly that didn’t go in their favour.
Florentino Perez is now trying every way possible to lure Neymar to Real Madrid by 2016. It is very obvious that a mega deal will be offered and a record fee would possibly be put forth for Neymar. In order to attract the striker to the Bernabeu, Real Madrid are reported to be ready to offer him a salary raise. Barcelona is thought to be willing to offer the forward a yearly salary of €15 million (£10.5m)
Neymar has been top notch for Barcelona and there is no way that the Spanish club will try to let their most important player go out of their hands. Neymar has scored 16 goals in 17 games in all competitions so far this season, and leads La Liga’s scoring charts having fired Barcelona to the top of the standings.
Real Madrid isn’t the only club trying to buy Neymar as English giants Manchester United is also linked for a move with the star striker.
