Neymar Senior confirms Madrid interest and €190m mega offer

The father of Barcelona starlet Neymar has confirmed that he has received a mammoth 190 million euro bid for his son to leave Barcelona.

He also admits that he would have preferred his son to have signed for Real Madrid instead of Barcelona so that they could have avoided all the problems related to the transfer allegations.

Neymar Senior was giving his statement in front of a judge regarding the allegations raised by Brazilian company DIS who owned 40 percent of the player’s sporting rights when he was playing for Santos.

According to claim by DIS, they didn’t receive their fair share from the transfer fee paid by Barcelona to Santos.

Neymar is the third Barcelona player who has been involved in court issues after Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano has been charged for tax allegations.

The father of Neymar, who also act as his agent denied any involvement of the player in the process that led to the transfer to Spanish La Liga giants.

Talking to the judge Jose de la Mata, he revealed that he has received a mega offer worth €190m, but refused to nam the club who made the bid.

He insisted that his son is keen on renewing the contract with the Blaugrana and is not looking to play anywhere else at this moment.

Premier League giants Manchester City and United are both rumored to be interested in the player since last summer, with both capable of pulling out expensive transfers.

While Barcelona’s arch rivals Real Madrid entered the fray this winter and the speculations were denied by Neymar only recently.

Real Madrid have also reportedly made three attempts to sign Messi since 2011, but all of these attempts were rejected by the player’s agent.

Meanwhile, the future of Messi and Neymar at Camp Nou hang in doubt as the attacking trio ‘MSN’ consumes 73% of the Barcelona’s overall revenue.

Earlier reports also suggest that Barcelona may be forced to sell Messi and Neymar, while no known interests are connecting to a Suarez exit, which is also a possibility if right bid is received.
