La Liga president Javier Tebas has insisted that the Los Blancos will not be paying a massive fee to sign Brazilian superstar Neymar this summer.
As Real Madrid are in search for a new manager after Zinedine Zidane decided to part ways with the European champions, club president Florentino Perez is aware that he needs a successor for either Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo as the duo are linked with a move away from the Santigo Bernabeu this summer transfer window.
Real Madrid is constantly linked with signing Neymar as the 26-year-old is seemingly finding the Ligue 1 too comfortable with less competition and wants a move away from Paris Saint Germain after just one season with the French champions.
The Los Blancos are ready to break the bank and another transfer record to lure Neymar to the Spanish capital with a bid rumored to be around €400 million. La Liga president Javier Tebas, however, has decided that the new Financial Fair Play rules will not allow Real Madrid to shell out the transfer fees.
Tebas Rules Out Neymar Transfer-
Speaking to news outlet Marca, the 55 year old Spaniard issued a warning to the Champions League winners that he will not allow them to pay a sum of €400 million, virtually ruling out a move for Neymar back to La Liga, “Real Madrid aren’t going to pay the 400 million euros needed for Neymar. However, the numbers that they generate can put them close to being able to undertake such a signing.”
Neymar has been sensational for PSG ever since making a move to the Parc Des Princes last summer in a £198 million deal from Barcelona. The attacking midfielder has scored 27 goals and notched up 16 assists until a misfortunate injury cut short his season in February.
I don’t see Neymar switching clubs and definitely not joining his former club’s most fierce rivals because PSG value him and will not let him go at any price. However, I think that Financial Fair play rules should be more strict because there is too much of inflation in the transfer market.
