Real Madrid have released a statement this evening denying reports that they have made a bid for Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar.
The Spanish club says they have no plans on making an offer for the Brazilian this summer.
The statement reads:
“Given the constant information linking the PSG player Neymar Jr. with our club, Real Madrid CF wants to clarify that there are no plans to make any offers for the player,”
“The relationship between the two clubs is extraordinary so that if at some point Real Madrid were considering signing a PSG player, the first thing the club would do would be to make an official approach.”
Real’s statement comes less than two weeks after they were forced to deny they were interested in signing Neymar following reports regarding a £275m offer in the Spanish press.
“Given the information issued tonight by TVE on a supposed offer of Real Madrid to PSG and player Neymar, Real Madrid CF said that this information is outright false,” it said.
“Real Madrid has not made any kind of offer to PSG or the player.
“Real Madrid is surprised that Spanish public television has been able to broadcast absolutely false information without anyone from this medium has contacted any of the parties to contrast the alleged information that could easily have been denied.”
