An offer has reportedly been made for Neymar by Real Madrid as speculation remains rife that the Paris Saint-Germain superstar is set to leave this summer.
Barcelona are said to be considering a move to secure a return for Neymar, with talk of a €100m+ player exchange offer.
But, according to Mundo Deportivo, it’s now suggested that Los Blancos have made their own offer with a similar method.
The report hints that Real Madrid have made a bid consisting of €130m plus either Gareth Bale or James Rodriguez to persuade PSG to sell, while a lucrative contract with a huge salary of €30m-a-season could be put on the table to convince the Brazilian international too.
Nevertheless, it is suggested that the 27-year-old has a yearning to return to Barcelona, and so their rivals could have a hard time beating them to his signature this summer notwithstanding the bid made.
However, it will obviously prove difficult to keep Barcelona at bay, particularly with Sport noting that the samba star is already said to be looking for a house in the city to seal a second spell at the Nou Camp.
The first priority for all though will be to convince PSG to turn on the green light for an exit, as they will have a major void to fill if Neymar leaves.
