Real Madrid have denied they are planning to replace Cristiano Ronaldo with Neymar Jr.
The Spanish club were forced to release a statement on Friday, after strong speculations linking them with a move for the Paris Saint-Germain forward, to fill the void left by Juventus-bound Ronaldo.
“Given the constant information linking the PSG player Neymar Jr. with our club, Real Madrid CF wants to clarify that he has no plans to make any offers for the player.
“The relationship between the two clubs is extraordinary, so that, if at some point Real Madrid were considering hiring a PSG player, the first thing he would do would be to go to his club,” it read.
It is also believed that PSG are seeking to offer Neymar an improved deal only one year after he joined the club, to ward off interest from the European champions.
