Madrid issue Ney denial – again

For the second time this month, Real Madrid have issued a public denial over Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar.

Reports emerged on Friday that Madrid had sent an emissary to meet Neymar’s father and negotiate a deal for the ex-Barcelona star.

However, Los Blancos said in a statement: “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 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.”

Madrid have also denied making a bid for Neymar’s PSG teammate and French World Cup finalist Kylian Mbappe.
