Neymar, Real Madrid and a common future

Though it would be a very expensive operation and fraught with complications, Neymar and Real Madrid are moving towards a shared future.

Such a move requires the pooling of many conditions, including the player's desire in the first place and the special economic situation of Paris Saint-Germain.

From the Brazilian's point of view, there is some certainty that he would not repeat what he had done seven months ago to leave Barcelona, at least those are the messages that have reached the Los Blancos board from the player's closest advisors.

UEFA will be relentless when applying 'Financial Fair Play' at PSG, and the French side will have to sell to one of its main assets for an amount close to 100 million euros shortly in order to comply.

The exact amount in question isn't definitive at this stage and will not be known until March, just after the Champions League second leg against Real.

PSG will then have a short period up until June to balance their accounts and, especially, to show that the money they have available comes through commercial agreements and not generous donations from the Qatari government - which is UEFA's main concern.

At various meetings held at UEFA headquarters, it has been shown that the signings of Neymar and Mbappe conform to the normal codes of practice.

The Brazilian arrived at the Parc des Princes after his 222 million euro buyout clause was paid, whilst the French wunderkind is on loan from Monaco with a mandatory purchase clause of 180m euros.

What is no longer so clear are the movements of money and, even less so, the alleged commercial agreements with certain companies all related to the government of Qatar.

To fall in line with FFP, the first estimates point to PSG having to pay an amount close to 80 million euros for the sale of players before June 30.
