Transfer news: Neymar ready to take pay cut to sign for Real Madrid

Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar Jnr., has made up his mind to leave for Real Madrid this summer.

French publication, L’Equipe, claims that Neymar is willing to take a pay cut to join the European champions.

The Brazilian has been constantly linked with a return to Spain and when asked last week about the 25-year-old, Real manager Zinedine Zidane expressed his admiration for the player.

“I don’t talk about players that aren’t mine, but having said that, and this is very important, he’s a player that everyone on planet football loves because he is a great player,” Zidane said.

PSG, who face Real in the last 16 of the Champions League, paid a world record 222 million euros ($271.28 million) to Barcelona for Neymar last summer.

The LaLiga giants tried to sign Neymar when he was at Santos, but were pipped to his signature by Barca.
