From Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2019 after reaching an “agreement in principle” with the Brazil international striker.

French source Le10 Sport (h/t Dan Gibbs of the Daily Express) has reported talks have been ongoing between Real and Neymar’s father, who also acts as the 26-year-old’s agent.

Those talks are said to have borne fruit, even though PSG would still need to consent to a sale before Neymar can sign a contract with Los Blancos.

The idea Real are getting closer and closer to an eventual deal for Neymar has been echoed by Barcelona legend Rivaldo.

If staying on the case has finally yielded a breakthrough in Real’s attempts to sign Neymar, it would represent a significant coup for Perez. He needs to inject some star power at the top end of a squad no longer enjoying the benefits of Cristiano Ronaldo’s goals after the club’s all-time leading scorer left for Juventus this summer.

There’s no doubt Neymar fits the bill as the marquee “Galactico” Perez usually builds Real around. The former Barcelona ace remains one of the deadliest attackers in world football thanks to a mix of pace, flair and the ability to both create and score goals.

Those qualities were most recently on display at international level as Neymar inspired Brazil to a 5-0 win over El Salvador on Tuesday.
