Gareth Bale was the last real "Galactico" signing by Los Blancos when he arrived for a then record fee of €101 million (R1.5 billion) in 2013, but club president Florentino Perez is keen to make the Brazilian his next superstar arrival, according to a report by Marca.

It is believed that the "total operation" would be difficult and could cost about €400 million.

Los Blancos are reportedly eyeing Neymar's signature in 2019, and would not pursue the Brazilian's services without informing his current employers Paris Saint-Germain.

The French club are unlikely to be keen on selling their world record signing, but Marca have suggested that Real could use Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be 34 in June 2019, as a makeweight.

PSG are understood to be keen on Ronaldo, and although he is not getting any younger, he still has a massive marketing appeal for the Ligue 1 leaders.
