THIS IS WAR! Real Madrid & Barcelona Both Confident Of Signing Neymar (Full Story)

Real Madrid and Barcelona both remain optimistic they can sign Neymar before the close of the transfer window in Spain on September 2, according to Spanish football journalist Dermot Corrigan.

Sky Sports News understands PSG are prepared to sell the forward they paid £200m for back in 2017.

Barcelona are expected to make a loan offer to PSG for Neymar, which will come with an obligation to buy.

However, Real believe the relationship between Barca and PSG will make that deal a difficult one to do and feel their chances of landing the Brazilian could improve as the deadline draws closer, according to Corrigan.

“Both Real Madrid and Barcelona would love to get Neymar before the Spanish window shuts but neither of them have the money to go for a full transfer outright,” Corrigan told Sky Sports News.

“Barcelona had a board meeting yesterday. They are looking to get a formal offer to PSG to try and take him on loan.

“Real Madrid are confident that if they wait then things will fall their way. They believe the relationship between the directors of PSG and Barcelona is so bad that the closer it gets to the end of the window, the better their chances will be of signing him.

“At the moment, both are still optimistic of their chances without anyone being sure they can get a deal done.”
