Paris Saint-Germain does not want to waste much time convincing the Brazilian forward to remain in the French capital.

The Ligue 1 Champions have identified Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, the French striker almost signed for Barcelona during the summer transfer window, but he chose to remain with the Wanda Metropolitano outfit.

Okdiario's chief pundit Eduardo Inda, speaking on El Chiringuito says the Ligue 1 outfit see Griezmann as relatively good value.

"If Real Madrid sign Neymar, PSG will need to sign a star, and they plan to sign Griezmann," he said.

"Right now, with the crazy prices that are handled, he's not expensive."

Griezmann's current buyout clause is set at £178m.

Inda also confirmed Neymar would already be a Real player if he had pushed for it this summer.

"If he had wanted, he would be at the Bernabeu," Inda revealed

"Madrid wanted him, but there was fear." Atletico Madrid would not prevent Paris Saint-Germain to make move for the 27-year-old forward.
