Neymar could end up at Real Madrid
Real Madrid have been linked with Neymar for months, even though the forward only joined from Barcelona last summer.
Neymar supposedly has a release clause of around €400million, while mega-rich PSG are unlikely to sell if a bid came in.
But reports in Spain claim Real and Nike could work together to raise the funds needed to secure the Brazil international.
According to AS, kit manufacturer Nike is willing to ‘collaborate’ on the deal to secure his move back to Spain.
Nike sponsor Neymar, who is one of their top ambassadors.
Real Madrid are sponsored by rival kit manufacturer adidas – but that is supposedly no problem with the American sportswear giant.
AS claim Nike are plotting a deal for Neymar that would coincide with their offering to become Real’s new kit makers when the adidas deal runs out in 2020.

Real earn €40m a season from the adidas deal.
And the report suggests Real may get a deal done sooner, pointing to the likes of Chelsea and Milan as teams that have cut short their sponsor contracts midway through.
