Neymar selfie causes 'big problem' for Real Madrid

Meanwhile, the highest body of European football - UEFA are said to be analysing the movements of Paris Saint-Germain after the purchases of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe for 402 million euros last summer, and the French club are scared of falling foul of the Financial Fair Play rules.

Neymar sent shock waves through the football bubble after sealing a whopping £198 million transfer to PSG. "I only care about finishing the season well".

Despite settling in Paris, he's been heavily linked with Real Madrid, and Breitner - who enjoyed three seasons with Los Blancos in the 1970s - is not only backing him to join Zinedine Zidane's team, but also to step into a leadership role.

Real president Florentino Perez has made it his mission to sign Neymar and revitalise his front line.

Could Neymar follow his fellow compatriot to the iconic Santiago Bernabeu?

While in April, Liverpool star Salah denies news about leaving the Reds and joining Real Madrid.

And, per AS, it's believed that Real Madrid wanted the two to meet before linking up as teammates in the summer.

Incidentally, Vinicius Junior recently told The Guardian that he hoped to one day play with Neymar at Real. The fact selfies of the pair appeared on social media is said to have caused Madrid "a big problem".

The prospect of Neymar playing in Spain again now seems a possibility with several key figures involved in "operation Neymar" to Real Madrid leaked as the Brazilian's parent club PSG fear UEFA penalty for Financial Fair Play. The Spanish giants didn't want the selfie to be in the public realm.
