Griezmann, the key that could open the Madrid door for Neymar

16 May 2019

Neymar’s name once again is heavily linked with Real Madrid with Antione Griezmann’s announcement on Tuesday that he is leaving Atletico Madrid potentially pivotal in any move for the Brazilian to the Spanish capital.

Neymar remains a key target for Real Madrid’s Florentino Pérez, with the president being accused of failing to deliver superstar players to the Santiago Bernabeu in recent seasons. Despite the imminent arrival of Eden Hazard with whom Real Madrid are expected to conclude negotiations after the Europa League final in Baku on May 29 and the likely arrival of Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt, club president Florentino Pérez remains a huge fan of Neymar- not least because of the marketing opportunities that the 27-year-old would bring in his native Brazil.
One detractor in the operation coming to fruition however is Zinedine Zidane. The French coach is busy preparing the 2019-20 season along with his backroom staff and is hoping to add the names of HazardPogba, Jovic, Eriksen and Ndombele to the already acquired Militao and Rodrygo.
