Real Madrid transfer news: Zinedine Zidane opens door for Neymar to make move from PSG

‘Anything can happen’: Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane opens door for Neymar to make move from PSG

  • Neymar is searching for a route out of Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain 
  • Barcelona and Real Madrid have been heavily linked with the Brazilian
  • Zinedine Zidane has refused to rule out making a late move for Neymar 

Zinedine Zidane has hinted Neymar could still make the move from Paris Saint-Germain to Real Madrid this summer.

Neymar is looking for a route out of Paris after successive Champions League failures since his world-record £198million move from Barcelona just two years ago, with the latter and Madrid heavily interested in his services.

Speaking after Madrid’s final pre-season friendly against Roma on Sunday, Zidane suggested that a move for Neymar is possible with three weeks of the window remaining in Spain.

‘Neymar is not [in our squad] but until September 2, anything can happen,’ the 47-year-old said.

‘We are with the squad that we have and we are only thinking about that.’

Madrid were quick to do the bulk of their business earlier on in the summer, bringing in Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Ferland Mendy, Eder Militao and Rodrygo. 

But a move to Real is looking ever more likely, particularly after PSG fans demonstrated their displeasure with Neymar.

Some supporters displayed a banner saying ‘Neymar, leave’ in the stands at the Parc des Princes during PSG’s game against Nimes last weekend.
