The reason why Real Madrid dropped interest in the pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar has been revealed.
President Florentino Perez is a fan of the former Barcelona forward and he has been craving to sign the Brazilian attacker since his days in Santos but the attacker opted to join the Catalonia outfit.
Paris Saint-Germain signed Neymar in a world record fee of €222 and after just a season with the Ligue 1 outfit, Real Madrid came knocking again.

However, the race to sign the Brazilian has taken another twist despite the fact that he is been tipped to be a direct replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo who signed for Juventus in the summer.
Los Blancos fans are not happy with Perez's prospect of signing Neymar and also the feedback they are receiving from the media as reported by El Partidazo de COPE.
Perez has been told that the Brazilian forward would prefer a return to Camp Nou and Real Madrid have decided to focus on signing Neymar’s teammate Kylian Mbappe next summer.
