The Brazilian superstar has already scored 26 goals and assisted another 16 in just 25 appearances for the French giants but found himself once again in hot water in France after riling up opposition players with a handshake snub in PSG’s 3-2 win over Rennes.
Real, meanwhile, have somewhat surprisingly struggled this season but didn’t buy any new reinforcements in the January transfer window.
Even though PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi recent stated he is “2000% sure" that Neymar will stay, rumours of his move to Los Blancos won’t dry down.
Spanish paper El Pais now claimed Neymar could depart PSG for €300 million, if certain sub clauses in his complicated contract are met before 1 September 2018.
However, Neymar would reportedly request a salary of at least €50 million (R740 million) to become the highest paid player in the game, which could upset Real’s current superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
The latest rumours appeared just 12 days before Real will face PSG in the UEFA Champions League on 14 January.
