Neymar’s father makes comments that only fuel Real Madrid talk

Neymar’s father was asked about a potential move to Real Madrid this week and his answer only fuelled the speculation.

Despite Neymar being just three months into the five-year, £600,000-a-week deal he Madrid signed in August, speculation has arisen linking the Brazilian with a return to La Liga and Barcelona’s deadly rivals Real Madrid.

The 25-year-old was asked about the rumours last week and he proceeded to storm out of PSG’s post-match press conference.

After the 7-1 win over Celtic, Neymar blasted: “For f**k’s sake, have you got nothing else to talk about?”

The talk has not gone away though with rumours suggesting Neymar’s €222million move from Barca to PSG only happened to ease the path for Neymar to eventually sign for Madrid.

Earlier this month Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro insisted he would welcome the addition of Neymar.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is said to be so desperate to bring Neymar to the Bernabeu that he will sell Gareth Bale and Raphael to Manchester United to fund the deal, according to Don Balon.

The report claims Perez is already planning to top the world-record fee next summer with a £223m bid for Neymar.

Asked about the talk, Neymar’s father told Fox Sports Brasil: “How can I answer that? I can’t talk about something that doesn’t exist. How can he go to Real Madrid? What sort of a question is that?

“Today we don’t have that thought [that Neymar signs for Real Madrid], answering that is feeding an idea that is not possible, I simply can’t talk about a negotiation that could happen in five or six years time.

“Neymar has a long contract with Paris Saint-Germain and has only just arrived. We are three months in and already a move is being talked about. It’s difficult for people to respond to this type of thing.”

Real Madrid came close to signing Neymar from Santos prior to his move to Barcelona back in 2013 and rumours of a bust-up with team-mate Edinson Cavani and claims he has failed to settle in France have only fuelled the talk of a return to Spain.
