Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is set to spend €500 million in the summer to land Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar, according to report.The Real Madrid directors are keen on signing Neymar despite the huge financial involvement.Neymar is a long-term target for Perez right from his days with Santos but the deal was hijacked by Barcelona in 2013.
Esteve Calzada, CEO of 'PrimeTime Sports', produces a biannual study of the transfer market which is regarded highly across the high levels of football.Calzada, reports Sport, believes it would take €250m to convince Paris Saint-Germain to sell Neymar after they parted with €222m to sign him from Barcelona. A five-year contract worth €40m-a-year would also need to be tabled.But when the various government taxes are added, the operation will be breaking the €500m barrier should Florentino pursue it.
