AS Neymar proceeded to taunt Rennes in a fresh sign the Brazilian is bored in France, the president of La Liga has re-iterated a desire for the former Barcelona attacker to return to Spain’s top flight. PSG were cruising to victory in the French League Cup overnight, as the world’s most expensive attacker decided to have some fun. Neymar showed off with flicks and tricks despite his side being a man light after Kylian Mbappe’s dismissal.In recent weeks and months, the seed of a Spanish return for the prolific Brazilian has been planted. Real Madrid seem the likely destination, with suggestions the player is keen to depart the French capital as soon as this summer, despite only joining in a world record deal in August. And now, the president of La Liga Javier Tebas has fanned the flames of a potential transfer.
I would like Neymar to return to Spanish football,” Tebas told reporters at the Spanish Sports Press Awards.
The team doesn’t have to be the same, but here [in Spain] we have to be the best - and Neymar is it.”
With Neymar’s return to Spain mooted, another long term Real Madrid target dropped a big hint that he too could soon be set for a Bernabeu arrival.
Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi’s social media activity has sent speculation into overdrive as the strikersbo
hinted of an imminent San Siro exit. Icardi posted an Instagram featuring a Spanish slogan which translates to “Being able to say goodbye is to grow,” with a caption reading “bye bye,” leading to rampant talk that he’s set to trade Italy for Spain. The Argentine has been linked with Los Merengues as a replacement for the out of form Karim Benzema.It could be a busy few months for Real Madrid, as the club look to rebuild from one of their worst seasons in recent history.With Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly on his last legs in Madrid and the club languishing domestically, Neymar has been touted as the man to restore the fortunes of Los Blancos.
French football reporter Julian Laurens recently backed the move on ESPN FC and suggested it could materialise as soon as the summer of 2019.
That’s because maybe there’s a bit of truth to it,” Laurens said after being asked why Neymar to Real Madrid links persist.
Neymar hasn’t really been settled[sbo[/b] in Paris and in France, he doesn’t really fancy Ligue 1 – he finds it too physical – and he didn’t really like the boos he faced against Dijon from his own fans.There are a few things he’s not really happy with in France but he’s not really missing any more games than he did in his four years in Barcelona. The signs are he’s not very happy and Real Madrid are already looking for a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who is 33 next month.
There are only two players in the world who can replace Ronaldo – one is Messi and that won’t ever happen, and the other is Neymar. I really feel there will be a point where Neymar will feel the only club big enough for him in the whole world is Real Madrid and that’s why I think it will happen not this summer but the summer after. By then, Ronaldo will be 34 years old, Neymar by then might have won the Champions League with PSG which is why they bought him, then maybe he will join Real Madrid. But they will have to pay over €300m because there is no doubt that if PSG sell Neymar to Real Madrid, it is to make a big profit.”show more click here sbo
