Neymar Real Madrid presentation plan
Real Madrid is hoping to beat Barcelona with the signing of PSG star Neymar.
Real Madrid plans to present Neymar next week if they manage to beat Barcelona against the PSG star, according to reports.
The two Titans of La Liga are struggling to land the 27-year-old, who is eager to leave the Princes Park.
It is understood that Neymar’s preference is a return to the former Barcelona team, but Real Madrid is also pressing to sign it, since he admitted defeat in his search for Paul Pogba of Manchester United.
And the Catalan newspaper Sport says that Real expects to present Neymar as his last Galactico next week.
Neymar PSG return
Neymar will play Toulouse in the next clash of Ligue 1 of Paris Saint-German on Sunday if his transfer situation is resolved.
“Neymar can play if the situation between him and the club is clear tomorrow,” Thomas Tuchel said at a press conference.
“He is ready to play, but today the situation is not clear, maybe it will be tomorrow.”
Neymar has been linked to a move to Barcelona and Real Madrid throughout the summer, with the Brazilian interested in returning to La Liga.
Bentancur to Barca?
Rodrigo Bentancur could move to Barcelona before the European transfer window closes, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Bentancur would cost Barca around £ 55 million, but Gazzetta adds that Barça is in the advanced stages of an agreement for the Uruguayan.
The midfielder arrived in Turin in 2017 and established himself as a pillar in the first team for much of the 2018/19 season.
But now it is believed that Barça is behind Bentancur, who impressed by Juventus the last term.
A final offer from Neymar
Barcelona will make a final offer for Brazilian superstar Neymar before the European transfer window closes.
Neymar is interested in leaving the current Paris Saint-German club and wants to return to La Liga, where he left in 2017 for a world record of £ 205 million.
Barcelona has already made multiple offers for Neymar this summer, but they have been rejected, including offers that include player exchanges.
But according to Sport, Barça is preparing a final offer before the transfer window closes and they expect the PSG to do so.
