Real Madrid are ready to make Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar the most expensive player in the world twice over with a stunning summer move as they look to start a new attacking dynasty.

Club president Florentino Perez has tried to bring the Brazilian superstar to the Bernabeu on several occasions but will now look to make a definitive move that will eclipse the £198million PSG paid to sign him from Barcelona.

According to Marca, Real Madrid are setting aside as much as €300m (£262m) for their summer expenditure and plan to use the bulk of it to tempt the Ligue 1 side into a sale.
Cristiano Ronaldo remains the biggest obstacle to the deal. He will have to bring an end to his Real Madrid career to make room for Neymar and it is unclear whether any club is willing to pay what it takes to sign him.

Indeed, as the same report mentions, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has already told Real Madrid he wants his wages doubled to match the £500,000-a-week deal that Barcelona handed Lionel Messi.

Keen to nudge him out of the club, Real Madrid have so far refused to entertain the idea of handing Ronaldo a new contract. The hope is he will finally make good on his constant threats to leave this summer.
