Spanish giants, Real Madrid, on Friday denied media speculations that the club wants to a make a bid for Paris Saint Germain’s attacker, Neymar.
In a statement published on the club’s website, the UEFA Champions League champions said they have no intention of acquiring the Brazilian striker.
The club noted that they have an “excellent relationship” with PSG and would have contacted the club if they wanted to get Neymar on their books.
“In the face of the constant reports linking PSG’s Neymar Jr. to our club, Real Madrid C. F. wish to clarify that the club has no intention of making any offer for the player”, the statement read.
“The two clubs enjoy an excellent relationship and, as such, if Real Madrid were at any stage to consider securing the services of a PSG player, they would approach the club in the first instance.”
Speculations had been rife that Madrid would attempt to purchase Neymar following the departure of talisman Cristiano Ronaldo to the Italian side, Juventus.
It is also not a hidden secret that the club’s president, Florentino Perez, is a huge admirer of the Brazilan and has always desired to have the Brazilian play for the Spanish capital club.
