Real Madrid have endured their troubles so far this season, and they could reportedly be planning a major swoop on the transfer market.
Zinedine Zidane has enjoyed quite the stint in charge since taking over in 2016, winning a La Liga title, two Champions League trophies, two UEFA Super Cups and a FIFA Club World Cup.
However, their form this season could be an indication that they may be at risk of dropping off a little as they sit in third place in the La Liga table, eight points adrift of rivals Barcelona while their loss to Tottenham in the Champions League earlier this month leaves them second in Group H.
Never short of a few euros, Los Blancos have now been linked with making a major signing as they have the funds in place ready to make a splash, and Marca claim that a €200m transfer war-chest could be used to prise Neymar back to Spain.
The Brazilian international left rivals Barca just this summer to join Paris Saint-Germain in a new world-record deal, but after missing out on Kylian Mbappe, Marca report that Neymar is the next star signing on Real’s list and they could plot a move either next summer or the year after.
Such a signing may well be needed before too long, as although he can quite quickly change opinion with an upturn in form, Cristiano Ronaldo has had his struggles so far this season and will turn 33 next year.
Meanwhile, Gareth Bale continues to be blighted by injuries and so question marks remain over his ability to be a leading figure for the Spanish giants.
In turn, while Marca also suggest that an emphasis will be placed on giving youth an opportunity at the Bernabeu, Neymar is a player that they would love to see join the club and it would undoubtedly cause quite the stir given his Barca ties if he were to join their bitter rivals.
