Real Madrid and Barcelona are scrapping to lure Neymar away from PSG before the European transfer window shuts on September 2.
The PSG forward is eager to leave the Parcdes Princes behind after just two years, having grown tired with life in Paris.
Neymar’s preference is to return to Barcelona but, with relations between the Catalan giants and PSG strained, a move to Real Madrid cannot be ruled out.And Sport say that Los Blancos chief Florentino Perez has sensationally offered Vinicius as part of a deal.
Real rate the teenager highly but the report says manager Zinedine Zidane is unconvinced. Perez is keen to back Zidane, having sacked Santiago Solari in order to bring the Frenchman back last season.
He also resisted the urge to appoint Jose Mourinho, who was actually his No 1 choice to come in at the time.
Perez reportedly feels PSG would accept the teenager, who is admired by director Leonardo.
And that could be the ticket to appeasing Zidane, who is ‘very hurt’ by the club’s failure to sign Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.
