Eden Hazard will likely be the first big name signing through the door at Real Madrid this summer, but any possible transfer move for either Neymar or Kylian Mbappe will not happen without the express permission of Paris Saint-Germain, reports Marca.
Los Merengues are unwilling to pursue either player in a clandestine manner which would go behind the back of the French champions.
There is a strong connection between the two clubs and Real Madrid president Florentino Perez doesn’t wish to damage such a relationship, especially with their respective opinions on a European Super League also aligning.
Paris Saint-Germain have been personally assured by Perez that there won’t be any underhanded approach to sign either Mbappe or Neymar, and as such Nasser Al-Khelaifi is calm.
If PSG wish to sign a player from Real Madrid then it’s understood that they too will act in an appropriate manner.
Real Madrid have seen first hand the damage PSG can do if a club is judged to have wronged them, and it was Barcelona’s ill-fated pursuit of Marco Verratti which led to the French club totally shifting the paradigm of football’s marketplace with their pursuit of Neymar.
Furthermore, an approach was made in terms of making an offer to Ivan Rakitic, which then forces the club who owns the player to offer significant contract improvements in order to keep them happy.
Los Blancos want to avoid this, and despite the obvious desire to bring one of Neymar or Mbappe to the Spanish capital, it will never not be on amicable terms.
