The Neymar saga continues, with Real Madrid, Barcelona and apparently Juventus going at it, trying to convince Paris Saint-Germain to part ways with the Brazilian winger.
While everybody in Barcelona is waiting to see Neymar making his return to Catalonia, and Juventus excited for the prospect of seeing the forward joining the Italian side, things are very different in Madrid, where players aren’t that convinced that Neymar will be a good addition.
Real are reportedly firmly in the pursuit of Neymar, with BBC Sport even reporting that the Spanish giants, along with Barcelona, have already had an offer for the forward turned down by PSG. Moreover, it looks like Madrid’s biggest signing this summer is not so excited about seeing Neymar finding his way to the Santiago Bernabeu.
According to Don Balon, several players on Real Madrid’s roster aren’t keen on the club signing Neymar this summer, with Eden Hazard being one of them, as he doesn’t want any other player coming in and steal the spotlight from him.
Neymar, Hazard, and youngster Vinicius Jr are players with similar characteristics, and all play on the left, so it does not look like a very good option for Madrid to add more players in that area of the field.
Despite having already spent a big amount of money this summer, Real are apparently preparing to make another big-money move before the closure of the transfer window, but plenty of fans don’t think Neymar is the player they need right now. It was believed that they were going to keep pursuing a Paul Pogba deal, but that gets more complicated every day.
Jovic, Hazard, and Rodrygo have joined a talented group of players that include the likes of Isco, Benzema and Marco Asensio among others, which makes you wonder if Los Blancos really need Neymar instead of a new midfielder.
