Florentino Perez is planning to return to his old methods of putting Real Madrid at the centre of the transfer market activity.
For this reason, Real Madrid’s president is pondering a move that would ensure his club’s nickname of ‘galacticos’ becomes actual again. According to the Mirror, Real Madrid are ready to allow Gareth Bale to leave Santiago Bernabeu next summer. The Spanish champions have already set the price of the Welshman. Any interested club would have to pay around €100m for the transfer of the winger. Bale’s career at Santiago Bernabeu has been tormented by injuries and Real would be ready to listen to offers. Manchester United have expressed their interest in Bale and it remains to be seen whether Mourinho will decide to submit a bid.
On the other hand, Daily Star writes that Real Madrid are ready to submit a €200m bid to PSG for Neymar. Florentino Perez thinks Neymar is the perfect player for his club. On the pitch, he would take the place of Gareth Bale on the wing, while off the pitch, his marketing potential would bring the club substantial revenues. Furthermore, the transfer of Neymar to Real Madrid will be a very big hit for Barcelona, who were left helpless when PSG paid the €222m release clause in his contract.
Real Madrid wants to take advantage of the Brazilian’s situation at PSG, where he is reportedly unsettled. Marcelo has already alerted his bosses at Santiago Bernabeu about his co-national’s unhappiness in Paris and Sergio Ramos already publicly declared that he would like to have ‘one of the best players in the world’ as a teammate at Real Madrid.
