Real Madrid president Florentino Perez still dreams of signing Neymar, according to the player’s former agent Wagner Ribeiro.
The Brazilian has been on the club president’s wishlist since his time at Santos, and it appears he’s still desperate to take him to the Bernabeu.
Barca still want to bring Neymar back to Camp Nou from Paris Saint-Germain but it seems a lot of clubs including Real Madrid have expressed interests in Neymar.
Whether Madrid could afford to pull it off remains to be seen but, according to Ribeiro, Perez would love to try.
Neymar spent four seasons with Barcelona, winning two league titles, three Copa del Rey and the Champions League in 2014-15.
Alongside Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez in the historic ‘MSN’ partnership, Neymar scored 105 goals in 186 games in all competitions for the club.
He moved to PSG in a world-record deal in the summer of 2017 and, while the goals and titles have continued to flow, he has been continually linked with a return to Spanish football.
Barcelona tried hard to sign him last summer, with Neymar keen to make the switch before any possible deal collapsed as the Catalans failed to offload Ousmane Dembele.
All the signs point to Barca again attempting to take him back to Camp Nou when the transfer window opens, with Inter forward Lautaro Martinez also being targeted.
