A name just one name seems to have the power needed for Real Madrid to handle the extraordinary blow that Cristiano Ronaldo, their great star, leaves for Juventus – and that only name is Neymar.
The number 7 will leave a big gap in the field (451 goals in nine seasons), and outside, the striker was the biggest treasure of the team, ensuring the club’s brand is ever more important.
Neymar has been the main target of Los Blancos for many years and approaches have been ongoing in recent months. Florentino Perez’s dream of signing former Barcelona player, considered by many as the best successor of Cristiano has been reactivated.
Excellent performance and a brutal economic drive, Neymar will generate money for all brands that are already linked to Real Madrid. The problem is Paris Saint-Germain, they do not want to sell their main starafter 365 days when they paid 222m euros to bring him from Barcelona.
It will not be easy for the French club to open the doors to one of their icons without winning the Champions League.
