According to a recent report by the Spanish publication, Sport, Real Madrid are prepared to reignite their interest on Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar Jr. ahead of a potential move during this summer transfer period. The same source has also claimed that the Galacticos have opened discussions with the Brazilian speedster’s agent but will face competition from Barcelona in pursuit of him in this off-season.

Neymar’s Frustrations In Europe And Poor Run With Injuries

Neymar was a frustrated figure at PSG last season as he failed to help his side go beyond the round of 16 stages of the UEFA Champions League which has put a dent on his reputation across Europe. He was plagued with injuries in the previous campaign that has derailed his career at the French capital.

The Brazilian striker needs to make a fresh start if he wants to find more joy in European competitions. A high-profile switch to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium could help Neymar reignite his career and win more silverware in the coming years.

Since arriving at Paris from the Nou Camp in the summer of 2017, the ex-Santos prospect has made a total of 58 appearances for PSG, scoring 51 goals while creating 29 assists across all competitions. 

Neymar also has a wealth of experience at the international level, having represented Brazil in 97 matches while registering 60 goals for his nation thus far. His remarkable goal-scoring record for both club and country goes to show that he has what it takes to become a Galactico in the future.

What Will The Brazilian Forward Add To Zidane’s Team?

The Brazilian talent boasts blistering pace, which enables him to make penetrative runs from the left flank. Neymar is highly skilled on the ball and can use a lot of tricks to deceive his marker when left isolated in a 1v1 situation. Furthermore, he is an accomplished finisher in the final third but can be a bit selfish at times with his decision-making in the opposition half.

Will Neymar Be A Decent Choice For The Galacticos?

The acquisition of a player of Neymar’s quality will undoubtedly bolster Zinedine Zidane’s attacking options at the Spanish capital. He will not only improve the quality of the Madrid first-team but will also help them win some major silverware in the years to come, which makes him such an ideal choice for Los Blancos.
