Real Madrid to sell four players to fund Neymar buy

Zinedine Zidane Real Madrid La Liga

Finally back in Paris after a lengthy ankle twist-induced lay-off that put his World Cup hopes in doubt, the likelihood of these being Neymar Jr's last few weeks in the French capital before moving on continues to increase given startling developments in his flirtation with Real Madrid.

Zidane refused to open up about a potential move when asked about Neymar playing for Real on Tuesday though. "I'm only focusing on finishing the season on a high", he told a pre-match press conference before Real's 3-2 loss at Sevilla.

President Florentino Perez is hellbent on snapping up a "Galactico" once the transfer market reopens, with the ex-Barcelona ace certainly fitting the bill.

Real Madrid great Paul Breitner is predicting Neymar to be "very important" for his former club next season.

The French champions added that Neymar's doctors Rodrigo Lasmar and Eric Rolland examined the player in Brazil on Saturday. Juni Calafat is responsible for Real Madrid signings, and for months he's been the one to approach the Brazilian forward.

According to Spanish outlet AS, Neymar met with Real officials on March 22 when he visited Vinicius Junior, who signed for the Spanish side in 2017. He is my idol in football.

And, per AS, it's believed that Real Madrid wanted the two to meet before linking up as teammates in the summer. The fact selfies of the pair appeared on social media is said to have caused Madrid "a big problem". The Spanish giants didn't want the selfie to be in the public realm.
