Real Madrid now odds on to nick Neymar

Samba star primed for rapid La Liga return?
Paris Saint-Germain talisman Neymar is now 4/5 with our traders to make a dramatic switch to Real Madrid this summer.
“The betting still suggests Neymar will switch to Real Madrid before the end of the summer transfer window in Europe in what could be another world record transfer fee if it goes through,” said Coral’s John Hill.
Following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid, there was talk suggesting Los Blancos would bring in another ‘galactico’ to try and fill his void.
Eden Hazard was mooted but looks increasingly unlikely with the Premier League transfer window now closed.
Attention soon turned to the PSG pair Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. The Brazilian moved to Paris with designs to prize the Ballon d’Or away from the Lionel Messi-Ronaldo duopoly.
However, Mbappe’s rise to prominence has seen many in and out of the French club take an increasing shine to the young Frenchman.
Neymar will hope he can guide PSG to a Champions League victory this season but it may be that he’s destined to become Real’s next poster-boy after all.
