Paris Saint-Germain want to sell Neymar to Real Madrid instead of Barcelona
After Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo admitted that they are in "advanced talks" for the sale of Neymar, football fans all around the world have been trying to figure out who they're selling him to.
Now, according to the latest reports, Paris Saint-Germain are looking to sell him to Real Madrid despite Barcelona being interested in re-signing their former player. PSG have a good relationship with Real Madrid whereas they share a strained one with the Catalans.
Barcelona were hoping that Neymar would go public with his desire to join them thereby quelling the competition. However, Neymar's desire to leave Paris Saint-Germain outweighs his desire to return to Barcelona.
As such, he is not interested in going public about wanting to join the Catalans as he does not want the other doors, particularly that of Real Madrid's, to shut.
