Real Madrid President: Neymar Passed A Medical At Madrid
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has revealed that FC Barcelona superstar Neymar once passed a medical at Los Blancos.
Before Neymar signed for Barca in 2013, it was widely reported that rivals Real were also heavily interested in the player.
It is believed that the Selecao talisman even went for a trial at Los Blancos a few years before his move to the Catalan giants, and Perez has now revealed that Neymar even passed a medical at the club.
"Neymar passed a medical with Madrid," he told Onda Cero.
"We tried for him to come, but we saw at one point that it was not possible and we withdrew (from the deal)."
Since signing for the Blaugrana, Neymar has scored 105 goals and assisted 80 strikes in 186 games.
