LaLiga: Real Madrid speaks on Neymar transfer

Real Madrid transfer news

Real Madrid transfer news

Real Madrid have denied a report they offered to buy Brazil star Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain for a world record transfer of 310 million euros (NZ$538m).

Real Madrid have been heavily linked with making a move for the ex-Barcelona man.

TVE, via AS, reported that Real are preparing to hand the player a remarkable seven-year contract worth €45m a season, but the club have come out to deny the claims in a weird turn of events.

Television Espanola (TVE), a state-owned public service broadcaster in Spain, is claiming that a deal worth €310m has been struck for the Brazil worldwide.

Madrid president Florentino Perez has tracked Neymar for more than a decade, and other recent reports had claimed that a €350m deal was being put together to bring him to the Bernabeu.

Former UCLA hoopster Trevor Ariza also left his Houston Rockets for the Phoenix Suns, signing a one year deal. George, from Palmdale, posted a photo of himself and Westbrook celebrating with cigars at the party.

But Real Madrid have taken the unusual step of formally denying the claims.

"To Real Madrid it is surprising that the Spanish public broadcaster has been able to broadcast absolutely false information without anybody at the channel having made contact with anyone to confirm the supposed information that is easily proven false".

"Real Madrid has not made any type of offer to PSG nor the player".

"In light of information broadcast tonight [Monday] by TVE regarding an alleged Real Madrid offer to PSG and their player Neymar, Real Madrid C.F. wishes to state that this information is absolutely untrue".

Neymar scored for Brazil as they booked their spot on the quarter finals with a win against Mexico earlier on Monday.
