Rumours that Real Madrid are after Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar refuse to die down, and new reports suggest that Los Blancos are aware of a secret release clause in the Brazilian's contract.

The 26-year-old is reportedly unhappy in France, and his inner circle was quoted by UOL Esporte recently as saying that he feels like he has lived "five years in just five months" in Paris.

The Brazilian publication also believes that Israeli super-agent Pini Zahavi is working on a deal that will see Neymar move to Real.

Despite these rumours, the player's father, who also represents his son, recently stated that his son's future is at PSG. This came immediately after Les Parisiens president Nasser Al-Khelaifi personally visited Neymar as the recovered from surgery on his foot injury in Brazil.

According to Marca, though, Real's bosses believe there is a special get-out clause in Neymar's contract, which would allow him to leave the French club after the 2018/19 campaign for €222 million (R3.2 billion) – the amount PSG paid for him.

However, the Spanish giants are believed to be keen to sign Neymar in the next transfer window already, with reports suggesting the operation would cost them a whopping €400 million (R5.8 billion) to complete the transaction.

It has also been claimed that Los Blancos would be prepared to spend €300 million (R4.4 billion) to lure Neymar to Madrid, and have put other targets on hold as a result.

If Neymar does not join Real in the coming window, the club would then be prepared to spend that €300 million on other attacking targets.

Eden Hazard, Harry Kane, Robert Lewandowski and Mauro Icardi have all been mentioned as possible signings, while Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema could be sold.
