Guillem Balague: Madrid try to include Bale in the bid for Neymar
- Unlike Barca, Real Madrid haven't made an offer for the Brazilian yet.
- Los Blancos have a problem: Gareth Bale doesn't want to be included in a possible swap.
- The Welshman doesn't want to leave Madrid this summer at all.
- Without money for Bale - or a swap - Real Madrid are out of the race for Neymar.
Gareth Bale is reluctant to be a part of a deal that would see Neymar join Real Madrid from Paris Saint-Germain, according to Spanish transfer expert Guillem Balague. What's more, the Welshman doesn't want to quit the Bernabeu this summer at all.
As things stand now, Barcelona are the favourites to sign the Paris Saint-Germain star. Both club's representatives have met in Paris on Tuesday to negotiate a transfer.
Ballaque claim the Catalans are ready to offer €100m and Philippe Coutinho for Ney. PSG's stance - €150 + Coutinho. According to ESPN report, Barca's offer also includes Ivan Rakitic.
Moreover, the Blancos haven't even made an offer for the 27-year-old so far. Madrid are behind the Catalans in the race for the Brazilian and will 'wait in the wings' for now.
