Real Madrid are set to offer £110million plus Ballon d’Or winning midfielder Luka Modrid to land want-away Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar.
According to Sport, Real want to add another marquee signing to their squad following the arrival of Eden Hazard, but Neymar is desperate for a move back to his beloved Barcelona.
PSG are looking to recoup the £198million they paid for the Brazilian in 2017 and Real have made their intentions very clear.
The French champions have been trying to get rid of the Brazil international since he revealed his desire to leave the French capital earlier in the transfer window.
And it is believed Parc des Princes chiefs would prefer a straight sale rather than a loan move with an obligation to buy.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is said to have an excellent working relationship with his PSG counterpart Nasser Al-Khelaifi – and a deal to sign the mercurial forward is in the preliminary stage of negotiations.
Real are not the only club to have shown interest in Neymar, however, as Italian giants Juventus have also made enquiries for the forward, with head coach Maurizio Sarri said to be a big admirer.
Furthermore, reports on Tuesday suggested he was even offered to Man United on loan this summer, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly turned down the opportunity to sign the Brazil international.

Last month, Thomas Tuchel revealed he knew Neymar wanted to leave Paris Saint-Germain before the Copa America.
“I am always disappointed when a player turns up late but it is clear between us, now it is between the club and Neymar,” said Tuchel.
“I knew he wanted to leave before the Copa America but it is something between the club and player.
“I am the coach, he’s my player. If he is in the locker room, this is my player and I work with him.
“But I am ready for everything and have to adapt every day.”
