Football transfer rumours: Neymar to Real Madrid in swap for Toni Kroos and Gareth Bale?

Today’s tell-all wouldn’t have it any other way

Perhaps emboldened by rumours Neymar has told some of his former Barcelona team-mates that he regrets joining Paris Saint-Germain, Florentino Pérez has decided the Brazilian might like to go Real Madrid instead. At least that’s what the Spanish website Don Balon are telling their readers, even if the story seems decidedly fanciful and unlikely. PSG have no intention of selling their star signing any time soon, but that won’t stop the Real president testing the waters by offering Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos as part of a players-plus-cash deal worth up to €400m to bring the Brazilian to the Santiago Bernabéu. Neymar was busy last night, opening the scoring for Brazil from the penalty spot in a friendly win against Japan in Lille. The Guardian’s man on the spot was David Hytner, who liked what he saw of Brazil, but was rather less impressed with their star player’s demonstration of petulance.
