Spanish giants Real Madrid have released an official statement in which they address claims that they have made a world-record €310 million (R5 billion) bid for Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with Los Blancos in recent months, following his move from FC Barcelona to French giants PSG in August 2017.

There have been reports that Real could target the Brazil forward in this transfer window, with Spanish television channel TVE claiming on Monday that the Spanish club has bid €310 million (R5 billion) for the player.

Real, however, responded with a statement of their own, denying that they have made an official offer for Neymar's services.

"In light of information broadcast tonight by TVE regarding an alleged Real Madrid offer to PSG and their player Neymar, Real Madrid C. F. wishes to state that this information is absolutely untrue," the club said via their official website.

"Real Madrid has made no offer of any kind to PSG or the player. Real Madrid is surprised that Spanish public television has been able to broadcast absolutely false information without anyone from this medium contacting any of the parties to contrast the alleged information that could easily have been denied."

With Cristiano Ronaldo said to be unhappy in Spain, many believe Real see Neymar as the 33-year-old's replacement at the Santiago Bernabeu.
