- Wagner Ribeiro says he has met with Florentino Perez several times over Neymar's potential transfer.
- The last time it happened in May 2019.
- It was also Wagner Ribeiro who claimed Neymar wouldn't leave PSG this summer due to the coronavirus crisis.
He told FoxSports: "I have been to Madrid several times because the objective of Florentino Perez was to recruit Neymar. Last year, in May, I was with him in his office. He told me that he had this dream of signing Neymar."
No further information was provided, though.
Even though Real Madrid appear to have an unlimited transfer budget, it sounds rather odd that the club could have afforded both Eden Hazard and Neymar in the same summer. As a reminder, Los Blancos landed the Belgian for €100million in 2019.
It was also Wagner Ribeiro who claimed that Neymar wouldn't leave PSG this summer due to financial impact of coronavirus.
Barcelona have been long linked with Neymar's return. They tried to land him last summer but Paris Saint-Germain refused to cooperate.
It remains to be seen how much would it take to bring back Neymar. Citing KPMG, Catalan outlet Diario Sport report that the Brazilian's market price has dropped by 21.7%, going from €177m to €137m. Transfermarkt, meanwhile, value him at €128m.
Neymar bagged 18 goals and 10 assists for the Ligue 1 champions in 22 appearances so far this season.
