Following the 26-year-old's record transfer from Barca to Paris Saint-Germain last season, many have tipped the forward to play for Los Blancos next.
Neymar went on trial at Real as a teenager but ended up signing for the Catalan giants when he was 21 years old, but is it his destiny to still wear the famous white jersey?
According to COPE, the possibility of Neymar joining Real has dropped to zero. It has been claimed that president Florentino Perez has lost all interest in the trickster, who was once considered Cristiano Ronaldo's natural successor at the Santiago Bernabeu.
It is believed Perez is under the impression Los Blancos supporters are not fully convinced by Neymar, who has recently flirted with the idea of returning to Barca.
This might push Real to go all out for the signature of 19-year-old wonderkid Kylian Mbappe, although they have also been linked with Chelsea winger Eden Hazard.
Neymar could reportedly be set on leaving PSG at the end of the current campaign, and the Blaugrana now seem his most likely destination.
