Neymar was Real Madrid president’s “dream signing”

first_img He claims that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, well known for his love of making a splash in the transfer market, had described the PSG winger as his “dream signing” just one year ago. As a former Barcelona star, and one who rather embarrassed the Catalan club by leaving so suddenly in the summer of 2017, bringing him as a trophy – and a brilliant player – to the Bernabeu has huge appeal to anyone in charge of Real Madrid.Advertisement Read Also: UEFA endorse Spanish FA proposal for European spots It’s a complicated situation – Neymar’s situation in Paris is now perhaps more comfortable than it was a year ago. Meanwhile his teammate Kylian Mbappe, possibly the only bigger star than the Brazilian in world football not named Lionel Messi, seems to be a potential target for Madrid now. Maybe, after all that, Neymar will end up back in Barcelona after all, and Perez’s dream will never come to fruition. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 “I went to Madrid several times, because Florentino had the dream to buy Neymar. Last year I was with him, in May, in his office, and he told me that he still dreamed of signing him.” Loading… center_img Real Madrid and Barcelona never miss a chance to get one over on one another, both on and off the pitch.

Pique demands drastic action at Barcelona

first_img Loading… Bayern overwhelmed a broken-looking Barca, but Setien’s side collapsed in a manner perhaps never seen. Thomas Muller bagged a brace, with Ivan Perisic, Serge Gnabry, Joshua Kimmich and Robert Lewandowski all on target too, before Coutinho got in on the act with his damaging double. Long-serving defender Pique has won 20 major titles in 12 years at the club, and used all that clout to point fingers at the Barcelona board with his forthright comments. read also:Rivaldo urges Man Utd to consider Barcelona winger Dembele President Josep Maria Bartomeu insisted changes have already been planned for next season, and will be confirmed next week.

It is not the first time, the second time or the third time, it’s very tough. “I hope it is useful for something. “Now everyone has to have a good look at themselves, the club needs change and I am not talking about the coach or the players, I am not pointing the finger at anyone. “We have to have a real look internally about what is best for the club.”Advertisementlast_img read more
