PSG are willing to sell Neymar to Real Madrid in order to keep Kylian Mbappe, according to reports in Spain.
Real Madrid have been strongly linked with a move for the Brazil striker, 26, ever since his £198million move to the French champions last summer.
Los Blancos last week denied they have made contact with the former Barcelona frontman, amid speculation their heads have instead been turned by his club team-mate Mbappe.
Mbappe, 19, was one of the standout stars of France’s World Cup triumph and, for many, usurped Neymar as the heir to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi’s Ballon d’Or throne.
And Madrid-based outlet AS reports that Mbappe is the player PSG are now desperate to keep.
It is claimed that Neymar is no longer viewed as ‘untransferable’ – but boss Thomas Tuchel will have the final say.
SunSport reported last month that Real are willing to splash out up to £307m to land Neymar this summer.
And they are now increasingly keen to land a new Galactico after selling Portuguese superstar Ronaldo to Juventus.
Madrid have also been linked with moves for Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Chelsea’s Eden Hazard in recent weeks.
And Bernabeu president Florentino Perez confirmed on Wednesday that he will be making big signings in the wake of Ronaldo’s exit.
He said: “We are Madrid and we always want more. Each title is the first step to search for new victories.
“We have to strengthen the present and future. This is a great team that will be reinforced with magnificent players.”
